Why is the system not giving me the option to make my payment?

There are a several reasons why you may not be given the option to pay. If you are trying to pay Business Privilege Tax (Form CPT or PPT) or Corporate Income Tax (Form 20C or 20S) and If you have not previously filed a return with the Department, you will not be given the option to pay these taxes and will not be able to use the system as your method of payment. Also, verify that the access code and sign-on id being used is designated for the particular tax attempting to be paid. If you are still unable to make a payment, and none of the above applies, please contact the Alabama Department of Revenue at 1-877-256-2447 or (334) 353-7659.
