Arleen Alexander Hired as New Governmental Relations Manager


Montgomery, Nov. 4, 2014—State Revenue Commissioner Julie P. Magee would like to announce the hiring of Arleen Alexander as the new governmental relations manager for the Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) effective Nov. 3, 2014.


The Alabama Department of Revenue has recently launched many significant projects that will require a great deal of integration between the state and all of its peers in local governmental offices. This collaboration is vital to the business community and will help promote economic development through the state.


 “Over the past few years, I have been very proud of the way the department and local governments have collaborated in order to bring more, streamlined processes that make it easier on businesses in our state,” said Commissioner Magee. “However, I feel we can do a better job of ensuring concerns are heard and needs are met. Hiring Ms. Alexander and charging her with this responsibility is going to help us bring about an even better level of service for the local governments as well as the business community,” she added.


Alexander’s role will be to facilitate conversation between the state and all local revenue, property tax, probate judges and license commission offices to ensure the department is providing the best possible service and resources for the local governments. Some of these projects will include:

·      One Spot- a streamlined process for sales tax returns and payments

· a portal to help business owners open, expand or close a business

·      OPPAL- a new online filing system for business property tax returns and payments


Alexander received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics from Auburn University and went on to complete her Masters of Business Administration at Louisiana State University. Alexander has a strong background in government affairs, communications, fundraising and association member services. She is a certified association executive (CAE), and with more than 23 years of experience she will be a positive asset to the department.
