Section 45-32-246.04Collection of taxes.
(a) The taxes levied by this part shall be collected by the Department of Revenue of the State of Alabama, at the same time and along with the collection by that department of taxes levied and collected for the State of Alabama under the provisions of the state sales tax law and the state use tax law, and all acts amendatory thereof or supplementary thereto. All reports now required to be made to the Commissioner of Revenue hereunder shall, on request made to the Department of Revenue, be made available for inspection by the Greene County Commission or its designated agent, at reasonable times during business hours. The State Department of Revenue shall prepare and distribute such reports, forms, and other information as may be necessary for the collection of the county taxes levied by this part, and shall have all the authority and duties in connection with such taxes as are now given by law to the Department of Revenue or the Commissioner of Revenue in connection with the collection of the state sales and use taxes provided for by the state sales tax law and the state use tax law, and all acts amendatory thereof or supplementary thereto. It shall be the duty of the Commissioner of Revenue to pay into the State Treasury all taxes collected under this part; and on or before the tenth day of the following month, the commissioner shall certify to the Comptroller the amount of special taxes collected under this part for the use and benefit of Greene County during the calendar month immediately preceding the month of making such certificate. Whereupon, it shall be the duty of the Comptroller to issue his or her warrant on the State Treasury, payable to Greene County, in an amount equal to the amount so certified by the Commissioner of Revenue as having been collected for the use of Greene County and paid into the State Treasury.
(b) The State Department of Revenue shall charge Greene County for collecting the special taxes levied by this part such amount of percentage of total collections as may be agreed upon by the Commissioner of Revenue and Greene County governing body, but such charge shall not, in any event, exceed 10 percent of the total amount of special county taxes collected hereunder within the county. Such charge for collecting the special taxes shall be deducted once each month from the special sales and special use taxes collected before certifying the amount of special sales and special use taxes due Greene County for that month.
