  • When signing up for My Alabama Taxes, individual taxpayers will need to select Individual Income Tax as their account type and then enter their Social Security number along with their Adjusted Gross Income from the prior year’s tax return.


  • Taxpayers may use their existing My Alabama Taxes account to reserve a portion of the available tax credit.
  • Once logged into My Alabama Taxes, a taxpayer will need to select SGO Donation from the menu on the left margin of the page and follow a short series of instructions/steps to record their donation and reserve their portion of the credit.
  • Individual taxpayers needing assistance with signing up for a My Alabama Taxes account or with reserving a tax credit may call 334-353-0602 or 334-353-9770.
