According to a press release issued by the Alabama Department of Revenue, filing business tax returns and making tax payments just became a whole lot easier. The department announced the online availability of a centralized, statewide electronic filing and remittance system for state and local sales, use, and rental taxes, known as "One Spot."
Business taxpayers can now go to one place to file and pay their city and county sales, use, and rental taxes, along with state sales, use or rental taxes—all free-of-charge through a single website.
“By working with our county and city partners, we have delivered a filing and payment system that will allow business taxpayers’ monthly tax filing and payment responsibilities to be so much easier and more efficient—especially those taxpayers who file multiple returns for various cities and counties across Alabama,” said State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee. “ONE SPOT is a huge step in filing efficiency, and one that could not have been accomplished without our local government partners. It truly is a win-win for all, but most of all for Alabama’s taxpayers. Local governments retain control over their tax administration responsibilities and taxpayers can complete their monthly tax filing obligations—all in one place, all at one time.”
To use the ONE SPOT system, business taxpayers must sign up at MyAlabamaTaxes (MAT). According to Commissioner Magee, most taxpayers have already signed up, since they have already been filing state returns through this same filing system over the last several months.
