Tennessee Clarifies Local Privilege Taxes in Sevierville
- Feb 3, 2015 | Gail Cole
Sevierville, Tennessee Department of Revenue has published a notice about it.
Sevierville imposes two special local privilege taxes:
- A 2% tax on the purchase of food at restaurants.
- A 2% tax on the purchase of admissions to amusements (theaters, shows, dance halls, and exhibitions).
Both taxes are separately stated on invoices. As a result, they are not included in the sales price and are not subject to sales tax. That’s what the department wants taxpayers and businesses to know.
