Identical legislation has been introduced in the Tennessee House and Senate to allow counties to exempt owners of antique motor vehicles from the privilege tax. The county may also require a one-time only payment of the tax. According to the state, the average amount of the one-time tax imposed would be $43.10.
In Tennessee, an "antique motor vehicle" is a motor vehicle more than 25 years old with a nonmodified engine and body that is used for participation in, or transportation to and from, club activities, exhibits, tours, parades and similar uses as a collector's item; on the highways for the purpose of selling, testing the operation of or obtaining repairs to or maintenance; and for general transportation only on Saturday and Sunday.
