Boats are registered through the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency (TWRA). The Clerk’s office sole role is sales tax collection on isolated sales. After the applicant submits proof of ownership (Bill of Sale or existing State Boat Registration) and pays required tax, they are given a receipt that enables application to TWRA for registration. State sales tax is 7% of the purchase price. For purchases in excess of $1,600.00, an additional State Tax of 2.75% is added up to a maximum of $44.00. Local sales tax is 2.25% and is capped at $36.00. This information is only for boats transferred by individuals. Dealers coordinate registration, etc., when sale is made by their business.
