​Filing Options

Filing Options: As designated by Alabama Department of Revenue.

Monthly:
All taxes are due monthly, with returns and remittances to be filed on or before the 20th day of the month for the previous month's sales.

Quarterly:
However, a taxpayer may elect to file and pay ​county sales, use, or rental tax on a calendar quarter basis when the total ​county tax for which the taxpayer is liable averages less than $200 per month during the preceding calendar year. The election to file and pay quarterly shall be made in writing to the Baldwin County Sales & Use Tax Dept. no later than February 20 of each year.

Annual:
Also, if a taxpayer's total ​county sales, use, or rental tax liability during the preceding calendar year is $10 or less, the taxpayer may file state sales tax on a calendar year basis.

Occasional:
The occasional filing option allows for filing only for the period in which you have tax to remit. Businesses that collect tax on an occasion (less than 3 times annually) via sales, deliveries, storage, use or consumption within Baldwin County will be considered for occasional filing. Occasional filers are not required to file "zero" or "no sales" returns.

** 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.
