Information for Software Developers

The following information is provided for Programmers and Software Developers for developing their Alabama electronic fuel tax return.

Additional information is coming soon. PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN.

Note To All Developers: During the software certification process, the Alabama Department of Revenue has prepared a testing environment to be used for making test submissions. Since the number of test customers created for this environment is limited in comparison to the number of developers submitting returns for these customers, please be aware that there will be a scheduled restore of this testing environment on a weekly basis. This is to occur over the course of each weekend, which means that submissions made after Friday afternoon will not be processed and will not be available for viewing the following Monday. Please make your submissions during the work week of Monday through Friday in order for validations and acknowledgments to be processed normally. Thank you for your cooperation during this process.
