Alabama nursing facilities privilege assessment is an assessment on the business activities of every nursing facility in the State of Alabama. The privilege assessment imposed is in addition to all other taxes and assessments; and shall apply to each bed in the nursing facility. The current total nursing facilities assessment includes a privilege assessment, a supplemental privilege assessment, a monthly surcharge and a second supplemental privilege assessment. The authority for collecting the Alabama nursing facilities privilege assessment is found in Sections 40-26B-20 through 40-26B-27, Code of Alabama 1975.
The total annual assessment rate for each bed in the facility is $4,756.80 or $396.40 per month per bed.
The returns and remittances are to be filed and paid monthly through the My Alabama Taxes (MAT) filing system on or before the 20th day of the month following the month during which the tax is accrued. No discounts apply for timely filing.Note: If paying via EFT, the EFT payment information must be transmitted by 4:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on or before the due date, to be considered timely paid.
The ONE SPOT system will allow returns to be filed with ACH Debit and ACH Credit method payments only. The system will not allow an ACH Debit taxpayer to complete their return filing without completing the necessary information to authorize the ACH Debit payment. The ACH Credit payment is separate from the ONE SPOT system and must be initiated by the taxpayer through their banking institution. Returns successfully submitted for ACH Debit and ACH Credit taxpayers will be exported to the local government.
When an electronic payment is received by ALDOR in error, the payment will post to the taxpayer’s ALDOR local tax account. ALDOR will not be able to automatically transfer these payments to the non-administered local government due to the possibility the taxpayer’s payment will reject after ALDOR has transferred the payment, causing complicated collection issues. ALDOR will need the taxpayer to advise the Department with what to do with that payment.
The only non-administered local government taxes to be processed through ALDOR will be payments received as the result of legal action, such as final assessment, garnishments, and liens, entered into when the local government was state administered. Payment data for these payments will be available during the first week (5-10 working days) of the month following the tax collection period through the ALDOR website.
