What are the submission dates for making my payment?
Tax payment transactions are due on or before the due date of the return.
NOTE: EFT payments must be transmitted BEFORE 4:00pm CST on or before the due date, to be considered timely paid.
NOTE: If you have debit block on your bank account, please provide the following information to your bank so that your bank will allow the tax payment(s) to be processed without rejecting:
(Company ID #) for Alabama Department of Revenue Payments
(Company ID #s) for Non-State Administered (NSA) Local Payments
You may submit the payment at any time up until the due date to be considered timely.
If you submit your payment early before the Due Date, you can choose to warehouse your payment so that the payment will not be deducted from your bank account until one business day subsequent to the Payment Date that you selected. If you choose not to edit the payment date, the payment date will default to the same date you are making your payment and the payment will be made the next business day if your payment is submitted before 4:00 p.m. CST, or two subsequent business days if filed after 4:00 p.m. CST. If you wish for the payment to NOT be deducted from your bank account until the DUE DATE, you must EDIT THE PAYMENT DATE FIELD and enter that date. You can change this date to any date from the default Payment Date up to the REMIT DUE DATE. Unless you select a later date, the payment will be deducted from your bank account the NEXT BUSINESS DAY.

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.
