What jurisdictions are included on the ALATAX LOCAL GOVERNMENT SERVICES Return in the liability worksheet?


You want to know what jurisdictions are included on the ALATAX LOCAL GOVERNMENT SERVICES on your liability worksheet.




  • When you see the jurisdiction ALATAX LOCAL GOVERNMENT SERVICES on your liability worksheet, this means you have calculated tax in Alabama for a local jurisdiction that is not part of the State return, but it also doesn't have its own local return.
  • These local jurisdictions are filed on one return called the Alatax Universal. The Alatax Universal return is collected and administered by RDS.
