Mailing Address and Tax Remittance Process Changes

Please note, we have made changes to our mailing address and tax remittance process in the Department of Finance Collections Office. You may have noticed that the PO Box number listed is different than what we have used in the past. Effective immediately, please send all payments and any other correspondence to:

Metro Nashville Collections
PO Box 305172, Dept. 168

Also, we have implemented "chapter numbers" by tax type that are now required with your remittance. The chapter numbers must be included on the top left corner of any tax worksheets of documents that you submit, if they have not already been preprinted on the documents for you. Failure to include these chapter numbers on the documents you submit could result in a delay of processing the paperwork. We urge you to visit our website and download the new version of the forms for your tax remittance. You will find the new chapter numbers by tax division listed below.

Chapter Number by Tax:

  • Alcohol Beverage = 550
  • Rental Vehicle = 532

  • Short Term Rental = 510
  • Franchise Fees = 608

Again, please visit our website and download the new version of the forms you will need. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office via email or telephone. We appreciate your attentiveness to these changes.
