A Change for Alabama’s One Spot Debit Payment Process


 A big change for Alabama's One Spot Payment Processing service.

Alabama taxpayers who file electronically through the My Alabama Taxes (MAT) should take note of a change to the payment processing system, effective March 3, 2014.

One Spot Debit Payment process

The One Spot Debit Payment process now makes only two debits from taxpayer bank accounts per local tax return filed. One debit is for all state administered payments and one debit is for all locally administered payments. Prior to March 3, 2014, all non-state administered (NSA) local tax payments were debited separately.

Additional information is available on an Alabama Department of Revenue notice.

ACH Credit Method taxpayers

ACH Credit Method tax payments are administered outside of the MAT, and payments must therefore be sent separately to the correct recipients. Taxpayers who use this method are encouraged to switch to MAT. Additional information is available on a department notice.
