Tennessee has opted out of the federal exemptions, but the
opt-out applies only to “citizens” of Tennessee. “[T]he citizens
of Tennessee . . . are not authorized to claim as exempt the
property described in . . . 11 USC 522 (d).” Tenn. Code Ann. §
26-2-112. It appears that the status of "citizen" is the
equivalent of domiciliary. (“Personal property to the aggregate
value of four thousand dollars ($4,000) debtor's equity interest
shall be exempt from execution, seizure or attachment in the
hands or possession of any person who is a bona fide citizen
permanently residing in Tennessee . . ..” Tenn. Code Ann. §
26-2-103. "“Should a bona fide citizen permanently residing in
Tennessee become a judgment debtor, such debtor must
exercise the exemption as provided in § 26-2-103 by filing a list
of all the items owned . . ..” Tenn. Code Ann. § 26-2-114.)

So, if this state is the applicable state (as determined by the
method stated on the home page of this site), debtors who are
not Tennessee "citizens" as described above on the date of
filing bankruptcy may use the federal exemptions.
