Exempt in Alabama? Certificate Required
- Oct 6, 2015 | Gail Cole
There will be new reporting requirements for tax exempt entities in Alabama, beginning January 1, 2016.
Currently, any group or organization with a statutory exemption from Alabama sales, use and lodging taxes is not required to furnish proof of its exempt status when making tax-exempt purchases. Come January, statutorily exempt organizations and groups are required to obtain an annual certificate of exemption from the Alabama Department of Revenue. Exemption certificates must be obtained prior to the end of the year and must be renewed annually.
Without the exemption certificate, companies and individuals “will no longer be allowed to make tax-exempt purchases or rent tax-exempt accommodations.” Learn more.
