Why are my Alabama local return copies missing from the filing archive?


You would like to know why you do not see copies of your Alabama local returns in the filing archive.


Avalara Returns



  • All non-state administered Alabama local returns, that require a separate filing calendar, are filed on the AL9501.

  • To see a copy of what was filed to the state, please download a copy of your AL9501 from the filing archive.

  • There are instances where the non-state administered locals will have a return copy visible in the filing archive.

    • We are not filing an AL9501 on your behalf

    • An internal process required us to file that jurisdiction(s) as a paper form separate from the AL9501.
