The Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) will hold public hearings on Monday, Feb. 8, 2010, at 10 a.m. and at 2 p.m., addressing income tax and motor vehicle administrative rules. The hearings will be held in the ADOR Legal Division's conference room, 3114 Gordon Persons Building, 50 North Ripley Street, Montgomery.
The 10 a.m. hearing will address amendments to two income tax rules. Alabama Department of Revenue seeks to amend rule 810-3-15-.20 Federal Income Tax Deduction — Individuals by allowing the taxpayer to deduct on the Alabama tax return the amount of federal income tax shown on the federal return after all allowable federal credits have been deducted.
The ADOR seeks to amend rule 810-14-1-.30 Penalty for Failure to Timely Pay Tax to include language that would allow a failure to timely pay penalty to be imposed on an annual, monthly, or quarterly return when the taxpayer fails to pay the amount of tax required to be shown on the return within 30 days of the first notice and demand for payment.
At 2 p.m. the ADOR proposes to amend one motor vehicle rule and repeal three others.
