Your Alabama Tax License Renewal is Due December 31, 2021

Beginning November 1, 2020, taxpayers are required to renew their State of Alabama Tax License on an annual basis.

2022 License Renewal Due Date: 12/31/2021

The My Alabama Taxes (MAT) website provides the ability for your business information to be verified and/or updated in order to generate a new license for the upcoming year.

The following tax types are required to renew their State of Alabama Tax License each year:

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

The following information is required to be reviewed and/or updated:

  • Current Legal Name – must be reviewed
  • Owner/Officer/Member Information – must be reviewed and/or updated
  • Phone number(s) – must be reviewed and/or updated
  • Social security numbers/FEIN’s – must be reviewed
  • Location address(es) including d/b/a(s) for each location – must be reviewed and/or updated
    • Main address must be reviewed
    • Location address(es) must be reviewed and/or updated

Each year, verification that the business continues to operate in the same business entity type for which the existing license was issued needs to be completed. You will need to apply for a new license if the entity type has changed (e.g. original entity type of Sole Proprietorship changes to Corporation or Multi-member LLC).

The renewal process is completed on an annual basis in order to generate a new license for each calendar year. Therefore, if the license is not renewed pursuant to Section 40-23-6.1, Code of Alabama 1975, as amended, the State of Alabama Tax License previously issued to your business will be canceled and you will no longer be allowed to use the Tax License in order to make tax-exempt purchases for resale or rental purposes.

Please be advised that your Alabama Tax License shall not be renewed until the required information has been provided.
