Tennessee – City To Pay $14K Following Sales Tax audit

The city of Crossville owes an additional $14,645.45 to the Tennessee Department of Revenue after a sales tax audit found the city hadn’t collected enough in taxes for sprinkler heads and did not require exemption forms for industrial manufacturing sales tax.

City Manager Greg Wood told the city council the city staff wasn’t aware it needed to charge sales tax on sprinkler heads in fire suppression systems and has never collected the tax. Taxes will be charged moving forward.

The audit covered Dec. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2018. The two issues were the only findings uncovered in the nine-month audit. 

The amount assessed to the city is $12,541.16, with a total of $14,645.45 with interest.
