Individual taxpayers needing assistance with the credit claim process or who have questions about available tax credits should call the Individual Income Tax Audit and Appeals Division at 334-353-9770.
Individuals that have a My Alabama Taxes account should complete the following steps:
Individuals that do not have a My Alabama Taxes account and are unable to create one should complete the following steps:
If the credit is from a Schedule K-1 issued by a pass through entity, the credit claim will be submitted by the pass-through entity, and no action is required by the individual. The credit claim must be submitted by the entity and approved by the Alabama Department of Revenue before the credit will be allowed on an individual’s income tax return. The pre-certification process must be completed by each entity that was allocated a credit until the credit is allocated to the individual claiming the credit. Additional information about credit pre-certification for pass-through entities can be found at https://revenue.alabama.gov/tax-incentives/.
These credits will be subject to an approval process when the tax return is filed claiming the credit. The following are credits that do not require pre-certification by an individual income taxpayer through My Alabama Taxes:
*Alabama Accountability Act Credit – Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) portion - The process for reserving a donation to an SGO remains unchanged. Only pass-through entity filers are required to complete the new pre-certification process in My Alabama Taxes for donations made to an SGO when the Alabama Accountability Act Credit is passed through to its members.
**Investment Credit (Alabama Jobs Act) – The approval of this credit is managed through the Department of Commerce. Once the Department of Commerce has approved the annual certification, ALDOR will notify the investing company to complete an allocation schedule through My Alabama Taxes. See https://revenue.alabama.gov/tax-incentives/.
***Growing Alabama Credit and Innovating Alabama Credit – The process for reserving a donation to an EDO remains unchanged.
All credits that require pre-certification must be submitted through My Alabama Taxes. Individual filers can remit the necessary information through their individual income tax account in My Alabama Taxes, or by selecting the “Submit a Credit Claim” option from the “Other links” menu in My Alabama Taxes. The credits that require pre-certification by individual income tax filers are:
*The Neighborhood Infrastructure Incentive Plan Credit – This credit expired in 2015. However, there may be some individual income tax filers that still qualify to claim this credit since there is a 10-year period over which the credit can be claimed.
Identity thieves have many ways to obtain your personal information. However, there are a number of precautions you can take to minimize your risk. This video provides five tips you can use to protect yourself against identity theft and fraud.
If you were affected by the IRS Get Transcripts breach, please know that we have taken internal steps within our system, noting that you were affected by the IRS Get Transcripts data breach. You will automatically be notified when ALDOR receives a tax return that has been filed using your Social Security number, alerting you to the possibility that criminals have your information and are using it to steal money from you and the state. You will be sent a verification code and will be asked to verify whether or not you filed a return by going to My Alabama Taxes and clicking on the "Verify My Return" link.
Once your return is accepted by ALDOR, you may be asked to complete a five-minute ID Confirmation Quiz. The ID Confirmation Quiz is part of an effort designed to protect your identity and your tax refund. Once you have completed the quiz and your identity has been confirmed, ALDOR will continue processing your tax return. Those taxpayers asked to take the quiz will receive notification by mail sent to the address on the return. The notification will include specific instructions for completing the quiz.
Tax-related identity theft occurs when someone uses your stolen Social Security number to file a tax return claiming a fraudulent refund. Generally, a criminal will use your SSN to file a false return early in the year. You may be unaware you are a victim until you receive a notice from ALDOR or try to file your taxes and learn one already has been filed using your SSN.
If you have registered at My Alabama Taxes and have access to your Individual Income Tax account, you can opt-in to a service that will notify you when ALDOR receives Individual Income Tax returns that have been filed using your Social Security number. This service can help alert you to the possibility that criminals have your information and are using it to steal money from you and the state. You can opt-in by logging into your My Alabama Taxes account and following the link "Notify Me of Filed Returns."
