ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE BACK TAX RELIEFGet started resolving your state tax liabilities using the information below. If you still need help, reach out to us using the contact form to the right of this page.
AL-DOR Monthly Payment Plan
The AL-DOR has had the same Plain Talk About Your Tax Liability Fliers (Part 1 and Part 2) on their website for a super duper long time. Unfortunately, they don’t really give you much specific information about what to do when you owe back taxes.
This web page offers some more basic information and includes a link to their Collection Information Statement and Installment Agreement request form.
The Installment Agreement rules to pay back taxes over time state that 12 months will be given with a balloon payment at the end. It also states that the Installment Agreement may be renewed for another 12 month period at the Department of Revenue’s discretion.
State of Alabama Offer in Compromise
As I write this, the Offer in Compromise is not an option to resolve your back taxes owed to the Alabama Department of Revenue.
Penalty relief with the AL-DOR is a mystery or maybe it just doesn’t exist. It seems that a request for penalty waiver will only be considered before the tax assessment is made final. Once the tax liability gets to the Collection Service Division, it’s probably not getting removed.
