Withholding Tax Exemption Change....Act 2015-504 repeals the provision in the Code which allowed a taxpayer to claim a total exemption from withholding tax. The Form A4-E will no longer be available for use by employees. Any employees currently using this form will need to submit a new Form A4 to their employer reporting the correct number of exemptions to which they are entitled to claim. Form A4 is available on the Department's website: http://revenue.alabama.gov/withholding/.
Enhancements to Tax Abatements for Qualifying Projects....Act 2015-24 expands existing incentives offered to new and expanding businesses under the Tax Incentive Reform Act of 1992 (codified at Chapter 9B, Title 40, Code of Alabama 1975) and creates a new section of the abatement law that provides for certain qualifying projects to receive an abatement on reinvestment projects (Chapter 9G, Title 40, Code of Alabama). View the highlights here.
New W2 Due Date Requirement....Beginning with the 2015 filing year, employers will now be required to submit their employee W2s to the Department on or before January 31 of the following year.

Departmental Rule 810-3-75-.03 has been amended to reflect the due date change from February 28 to January 31 of each year.
