Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) —The Tennessee Prosecutor’s Office has suspended all exemptions issued under the COVID-19 Comprehensive Act following a provisional injunction by a federal judge.

With the exemption issued by the Comptroller’s Office, private companies, government agencies, schools, and other employers who have issued contracts, subcontracts, or secondary grants granted or modified by the federal government are federal funds. We were able to impose COVID-19 vaccine requirements as a condition of receipt. So far, the Audit & Supervisory Board has issued 69 tax exemptions since the law came into force on November 12. These tax exemptions may be reinstated once the injunction is lifted and are legally permissible.

On Tuesday, a U.S. District Judge in the Eastern District of Kentucky issued a provisional injunction ordering the federal government to enforce vaccine obligations on federal contractors and subcontractors in Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee. I did. As a result, the Comptroller’s office can no longer find that compliance leads to the loss of federal funds.

Similarly, a U.S. district judge in western Louisiana issued a national provisional injunction on Tuesday banning the federal government from implementing certain healthcare providers to receive COVID-19 vaccination. The Comptroller’s office grants tax exemptions to Medicare and Medicaid providers, and these tax exemptions have also been suspended.

The Comptroller Office will continue to accept and process tax exemption notices during this period. However, tax exemption is not permitted unless legally permitted.Notifications can be submitted at https://comptroller.tn.gov/covidexemption [comptroller.tn.gov]
