Will Taxrates.com support the new Alabama 8% flat rate?

Overview

I am using taxrates.com and am wanting Alabama to reflect the 8% flat rate starting in October 2015.

Environment

Taxrates.com

Resolution

  • Taxrates.com will not support with Alabama 8% flat rate.
  • The reasons are:
    • Only sellers who do not have Alabama nexus are eligible to apply and participate
    • Seller participation is optional; and, 
    • Interested sellers must apply to the AL DOR for acceptance into the program
    • Participating sellers must file online through MAT. Non-registered vendors will be granted access to MAT via the application and acceptance process. Paper filing will not be available.
