Changes to Mailing Address and Tax Remittance Process

Please note that we have made changes to our mailing address and process for remitting taxes to the Ministry of Finance Collections Office. You may have noticed that the PO Box number shown is different from the one we have used in the past. Effective immediately, please send all payments and other correspondence to:

Metro Nashville Collections Mailing Address

Additionally, we have implemented “Chapter Numbers” per tax type which are now required with your rebate. Chapter numbers should be included in the upper left corner of all tax worksheets of the documents you submit, if they have not already been pre-printed on the documents for you. Failure to include these chapter numbers on the documents you submit could result in a delay in processing the documents. We invite you to visit our website and download the new version of the forms for your tax rebate. Below are the new chapter numbers by tax division.

Chapter number by tax:

  • Alcoholic drink = 550
  • Rental vehicle = 532
  • Vehicle under contract = 516
  • Short term rental = 510
  • Franchise fee = 608
  • Wholesale beer = 576
  • Hotel occupancy = 512

Again, please visit our website and download the new version of the forms you will need. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office by email or telephone. We appreciate your attention to these changes.
