Alabama: New Reporting Requirements for Vapor Products


 Sales tax reporting requirements for vapor products in Alabama to change, January 2016.

Effective January 1, 2016, tax remitted from sales of consumable vapor products in Alabama is to be distributed to the General Fund. As a result of this change, retailers of consumable vapor products will have new sales tax reporting requirements. The change is due to the enactment of Act No. 2015-535.

Sellers will note the addition of Column D — Consumable Vapor Products 4% on state sales tax returns (S&U: 2100 and S&U: 2105). The Alabama Department of Revenue reminds, “Sellers making retail sales of consumable vapor products reporting on a monthly, quarterly or annual filing frequency must comply with this new reporting requirement beginning with the report due January 1, 2016.” This is true “regardless of the period in which the tax accrued.”
