The Alabama Department of Revenue is participating in the Fed/State e–file project for the electronic filing of corporate and partnership income returns. This project is a joint effort of the IRS, numerous states, software vendors and other private businesses who have joined together under the umbrella of the Federation of Tax Administrators (FTA). Returns for the IRS and participating states can be transmitted to a single point (the IRS). The IRS will forward the Alabama returns to Alabama for processing. Alabama will return acknowledgements back to the IRS, where they can be picked up by transmitters.
