NOTICE: Motor Fuel Excise Tax Refunds

Posted: February 4, 2019

The purpose of this notice is to provide important information to the entities receiving Motor Fuel Excise Tax Refunds that will expedite the receipt of your refund.

Beginning April 1, 2019, it is recommended that each entity choose the option to receive their refund electronically via the State of Alabama Accounting and Resource System (STAARS).

STAARS helps to expedite the transfer of funds, reduces mailing and processing costs, and improves loss prevention. Therefore, it is requested that each entity visit the website at https://procurement.staars.alabama.gov/webapp/PRDVSS1X1/AltSelfService and choose the EFT payment option on your STAARS account. If you have questions concerning your STAARS account, you should contact the STAARS Helpdesk at 334-353-9000. When the EFT option is chosen, STAARS will begin processing EFT payment for the motor fuel excise tax refunds, and you will no longer receive a paper check from our office.
