Future Donations/Tax Credits under Alabama Accountability Act Suspended


Montgomery—Effective May 28, 2014, the Alabama of Department of Revenue has disabled the online portal that allows taxpayers to donate to Scholarship Granting Organizations and reserve an Alabama tax credit under the Alabama Accountability Act.  This action was taken as result of the May 28, 2014, ruling in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Alabama, Dr. Daniel Boyd et al v. Julie P. Magee et al, Case No.  03-CV-2013-901470.00.  


A copy of the court order may be found on the Department of Revenue’s website.


The court order applies prospectively, meaning that any tax credits under Section 8 for expenditures with respect to the 2013-2014 school year, and tax credits under Section 9 with respect to donations made prior to the date of this order will be allowed.


Any questions concerning future legal action should be directed to the State Attorney General’s Office.
