Alabamians to file more State taxes on-line?
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Department of Revenue is trying to streamline the process for state residents to file taxes and apply for licenses. Revenue Commissioner Julie Magee said Friday making more services available online will speed up the process, cut costs and make the filing and application process easier. . Magee said the new effort includes moving the majority of the remaining business taxes to online. The department sent out notices in June advising residents of plans to move to more electronic filing. She said the turnaround time for processing and issuing licenses will be improved as many of the current manual processing steps will be eliminated. Magee said the goal is for business taxpayers to spend less time on taxes and more time focusing on their businesses.
