Alabama Changes Estimated Sales Tax Payments


 Alabama: monthly estimated sales tax payments no longer required for taxpayers with a monthly tax liability of less than $2,500.

The guidelines used to determine whether or not monthly estimated sales tax payments are required have changed in Alabama, with the enactment of the Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2014.

Effective August 1, 2014, only taxpayers with an average monthly tax liability of $2,500 or greater are required to make estimated state sales tax payments. Prior to August 1, 2014, taxpayers with an average monthly tax liability of $1,000 or greater were required to make estimated sales tax payments.
