To Governmental Exempt Entities And Their Contractors

The Alabama Department of Revenue is pleased to announce that governmental exempt entities, as defined in §40-9-14.1, and their contractors may now apply online for a Certificate of Exemption for a Government Entity Project. Applicants will log into their My Alabama Taxes (MAT) account, click on the “Other Actions” tab and locate the “Apply for a Certificate of Exemption for a Government Entity Project” link. Applicants should follow the required steps and submit the requested appropriate documentation.

In the past, paper applications for governmental entity projects had to be submitted to ALDOR. The new electronic method will streamline the application process, allowing applicants to become more proficient at submitting applications and they will notice a more efficient turnaround time in the processing and issuance of certificate of exemptions.

Contact the Sales and Use Tax Division’s Exemption Unit at stexemptionunit@revenue.alabama.gov or 334-242-1490 if you have further questions.
