The state Department of Revenue is offering taxpayers a quick and easy way to renew sales tax and other licenses which, starting this year, must be renewed annually.
Beginning Nov. 1, all sales and use tax licenses must be renewed annually by Dec. 31 online through the My Alabama Taxes portal. There is no charge to renew these licenses, which are required for:
- Sales Tax
- Rental Tax
- Sellers Use Tax
- Lodgings Tax
- Utility Gross Receipts Tax
- Simplified Sellers Use Tax
The online renewal process in MAT will allow retailers to print their licenses on-demand and quickly verify their licensing status with their vendors. One renewal process will update all the required licenses for a given entity.
Taxpayers will need to log into the MAT portal to update and/or verify the required information to generate a new license for the upcoming calendar year. Once logged into MAT, taxpayers will be required to review and update pertinent information. The renewal process also will require verification that the business is continuing to operate in the same business entity type for which the existing license was issued. Taxpayers will need to apply for a new license if the entity type has changed. The renewal process will be completed annually to generate a new license for each calendar year.
