Notice of Annual Renewal of Alabama Tax Licenses

Good Morning,

The Alabama Department of Revenue recently announced that beginning November 1, 2020, taxpayers will be required to renew the State of Alabama Tax License annually. The annual license renewal applies to these tax types:

  • Sales Tax
  • Rental Tax
  • Sellers Use Tax
  • Lodgings Tax
  • Utility Gross Receipts Tax
  • Simplified Sellers Use Tax

Renewals can be obtained on The My Alabama Taxes (MAT) website. Taxpayers will need to verify and/or update business information in order to generate a new license. This includes:

  • Current legal name
  • Owner/officer/member information
  • Phone Number
  • Social security number/FEIN
  • Location addresses for each location

Taxpayers will also need to verify they are operating as the same business entity type for which the existing license was issued. You will need to apply for a new license if your entity type has changed (e.g. sole proprietorship changes to multi-member LLC).

The new license needs to be obtained for each calendar year and previously issued licenses will be cancelled if not renewed.

If you have any questions regarding the license renewal requirement, please let us know.
