I, Vernon Barnett, Commissioner of the Alabama Department of Revenue, pursuant to the power granted to me under §40-2-11, Code of Alabama 1975, hereby declare that because there is a state of emergency resulting from Hurricane Michael, it is necessary to assist and expedite all efforts of relief.  In order to accommodate this need and provide assistance to the citizens affected by this storm, I hereby order the temporary suspension of the motor fuel exporter licensing and motor fuel transporter licensing requirements associated with the Alabama Terminal Excise Tax for exporters and transporters supporting disaster relief efforts by engaging in the export of motor fuel from Alabama to other states impacted by Hurricane Michael.
Nothing in this Executive Order shall be construed to permit any waiver of any additional exemption requirements under the Alabama Terminal Excise Tax, including the requirement for suppliers to collect and remit the destination state tax, or from any statute, rule, order or other legal requirement not specifically waived herein.
Because of the on-going state of emergency resulting from Hurricane Michael, this Executive Order shall be effective until the end of thirty (30) days after the signing of the Executive Order.
