Obtain a Certificate of Tax Clearance from the Separtment of Revenue
The Department of Revenue is located in the Andrew Jackson building on the corner of 5th Avenue South and Charlotte Avenue in downtown Nashville. Before driving down, make a phone call to find out whether you are eligible to obtain a tax clearance certificate. Many times back taxes and penalties are owed to the State where a corporation has failed to file annual reports. Complete the necessary state tax returns and proceed, with payments, to the Department of Revenue. If you have the correct documents and payment amounts, then you should be able to get the tax clearance on your first visit.
Take Tax Clearance and Annual Reports to Secretary of State
After you receive your Certificate of Tax Clearance, you will need to walk out Charlotte Avenue to the Tennessee Tower (the Secretary of State's Office). Go up to the 6th floor with your annual reports and certificate of tax clearance. You will turn all of these forms over along with any filing fees, and your corporation should be reinstated on your first visit.
Hope this Helps
Often times individuals attempting to reinstate their corporation end up walking all over downtown and making several unnecessary trips. I hope this helps you get your company reinstated with as little delay as possible.
