The Alabama Department of Revenue (Department) does not statutorily provide guidelines for taxpayers who wish to voluntarily come forward and comply with Alabama tax laws. However, the Department has provided a Voluntary Disclosure Program as a service to business taxpayers who are not in compliance with Alabama tax laws to come forward voluntarily to register and become compliant in their tax filing obligations. The Department offers the Voluntary Disclosure Program only to those business taxpayers who have not registered, not filed returns, not made a tax payment and have not been contacted by the Department or an agent of the Department, such as the Multistate Tax Commission, for seven years prior to the postmark/receipt date of the initial written request.
The Department considers contact and the filing/payment of returns on a tax-by-tax basis. For example, if a taxpayer has been contacted or filed/paid a return for one type of tax, this will not preclude the taxpayer from entering the Program for other tax types.
Generally, the taxes eligible for the Voluntary Disclosure Program are:
