State Taxes

Tennessee is one of only nine states without a state income tax. Additionally, Tennessee residents enjoy one of the lowest tax burdens in the country. According to the Tax Foundation, Tennessee’s “Tax Freedom Day” — the day of the year when residents will have earned enough money to satisfy their total tax obligation for that year — is April 5, which ranks fifth in the country. No state adjoining Tennessee ranks better.

Tax Relief

Tennessee offers property tax relief for homeowners who meet certain criteria (elderly, disabled, disabled veteran, or surviving spouse of a disabled veteran). Learn more about the program.
