Do I have to renew my Alabama Tax Account License?
Yes, businesses that hold an Alabama Sales Tax, Rental Tax, Sellers Use Tax, Lodgings Tax, Simplified Sellers Use Tax and/or Utility Gross Receipts Tax account(s) are required to renew those tax account licenses annually, in November/December, for the next tax year. One renewal process will update all of the required licenses for that entity.
You may call 334-242-1490 or send a message through your My Alabama Taxes account; go to the tax account and then click on the “Ask a question” link. You may call your local taxpayer service center for assistance; locate your local taxpayer service center HERE. Or, you may send an email to: email@example.com.
No, the Tax Account License will be available for download or printing in your MAT account. To access the Tax Account License, login to your MAT account, click on “Accounts” and find the account type in your list of accounts and click the “Print tax account license” or the “Print tax account license for next year” link, whichever is appropriate or available at the time. If the license renewal is done on a business day before 4:00 p.m. CT, the “Print license for next year” link will be available on the next business day; if the renewal is done after 4:00 p.m. CT, the link will be available on the second business day.
Updating LLC members information will be done on the Officers page during the tax account license renewal process. Enter a cease date for old members/officers and add new members/officers’ information on the next empty record. Remember to follow through with providing the properly executed documents to update the Alabama Secretary of State HERE.
A new entity type will require a new application be submitted for that entity at MAT. When you visit the page, click on the “Register a business/Obtain a new tax account number” link and follow the instructions. Remember to follow through with providing the properly executed documents to update the Alabama Secretary of State HERE.
The tax account associated with that Tax Account License will be closed and the license will no longer be valid for use. Once the account is closed, you will need to reapply to open the account. For businesses that sell beer, wine and/or tobacco products, a new application may require a surety bond.
Yes, if they normally file the taxes for that tax type (Sales Tax, Rental Tax, Sellers Use Tax, Lodgings Tax, Simplified Sellers Use Tax and/or Utility Gross Receipts Tax), then they have the ability to renew the Tax Account License for you. They will need to have all of the required information from you to renew the Tax Account License properly.
