25,000 businesses still need to confirm info to receive COVID relief money

Businesses eligible for the Tennessee Business Relief Program have until September 25 to confirm their information with the Department of Revenue so they can receive up to $30,000 in no-cost funds from the state.

More than 40,000 small businesses across more than 60 business types are eligible for the Tennessee Business Relief Program.

Depending on the gross sales of the businesses, relief payments range from $2,500 to $30,000.

However, more than 25,000 of those business owners still have to confirm their information with the Tennessee Department of Revenue in order to get their payments.

The Department of Revenue, before they issue federal funds, need business owners to verify certain information.
