Alabama Income Tax Withholding
Because Alabama and federal law vary in the number of exemptions permitted, employees must use the state form A-4 and may not use the federal W-4 as a substitute.
Full-time students who anticipate earning less than $1,800 per year and who expect to owe no Alabama income tax may file Form A-4E, Employee's Withholding Exemption Certificate. This certificate expires on Dec. 31 of each year.
