ONE SPOT

ONE SPOT (Optional Network Election for Single Point Online Transactions) provides a single point of filing for all state-administered local sales, use, rental and lodgings taxes, as well as, non-state administered sales, use and rental taxes through MAT

Act 2012-279, of the Regular Legislative Session FY 2012, requires the Alabama Department of Revenue to develop and make available to taxpayers an electronic single point of filing for state, county and/or municipal sales, use, and rental taxes. Act 2015-52 added lodgings tax to ONE SPOT and a provision for a uniform due date for local taxes eligible to be filed through the ONE SPOT system.

My Alabama Taxes (MAT) is the State’s electronic filing and remittance system used today for the filing of state, city and county sales, use, rental, and lodgings taxes. Since October 1, 2013, Alabama retailers have been able to file and pay ALL city/county sales, use, and rental taxes in MAT, the ONE SPOT to file! Effective October 1, 2016, those subject to lodgings tax can now file ALL city/county lodgings taxes in MAT.

When you file a non-state administered city/county tax in MAT on your “Local Tax” account, you will be required to make electronic payment. The return and payment will be sent to the local government or their tax administrator, eliminating the need to login to multiple sites.

Note: If paying via EFT, the EFT payment information must be transmitted by 4:00 p.m. (Central Standard Time) on or before the due date, to be considered timely paid.
