The TBA joined today with several professional organizations for a “Day on the Hill” to encourage the Tennessee General Assembly to repeal or reduce the Professional Privilege Tax. The group was addressed by several lawmakers, including Lieutenant Governor Randy McNally, R-Oak Ridge, and House Speaker Cameron Sexton, R-Crossvillle, both of whom are in support of a repeal. Gov. Bill Lee proposed a $200 reduction tax in last week’s State of the State address, while some administration officials and legislative leaders left the door open for further cuts, or to eliminate the tax altogether. The repeal or reduction of the tax remains a top legislative priority for TBA in 2020 and members can still help by contacting their elected officials through TBA Impact
