State Sales Tax Rates in Alabama

Typically, a business must charge sales tax for the retail sale of any physical goods, also known as tangible personal property (TPP). Sales tax may also apply to specific services, digital products, and warranty contracts. The seller — or company — is liable for this tax whether or not the buyer actually pays it.

Most states enforce statewide sales tax collected on goods and services. Alabama state sales tax applies to tangible personal property sold in Alabama by businesses that are also located in Alabama.

In addition, there’s the “sales tax nexus” concept. A business has nexus in Alabama when it has a physical presence in the state. This presence could be a retail storefront, a warehouse, inventory, or even the regular presence of traveling sales representatives.

As of 2022, the sales tax rate here in the state of Alabama is 4%. There is a maximum local sales tax rate of 7.5% and an average combined state and local sales tax rate of 9.24%. For more on sales and use tax rates in Alabama, visit the Alabama Department of Revenue website or reach out to us.
