Effective March 16, 2020, Governor Ivey declared a State of Emergency to lessen the impact of the coronavirus known as COVID-19 to the citizens of Alabama. The purpose of this notice is to provide important information to the entities receiving Motor Fuel Excise Tax Refunds that will help to ensure their refunds are timely processed during the current State of Emergency.
