Governor signs HB 231 to provide tax relief to Alabama families 

Special to the Enquirer  

State tax relief is on the way. 

Wednesday Gov. Kay Ivey signed House Bill 231, into law, providing tax relief for Alabama families. Government officials are projecting Alabamians will save tens of millions of dollars thanks to this bill. 

Effective for the tax year that ended Dec. 31, 2021, this law allows individual taxpayers to calculate their federal income tax deduction without consideration of certain items allowed under the American Rescue Plan Act. Any reductions to the federal income tax attributable to the federal child tax credit, the earned income tax credit and federal child and dependent tax credits, will be calculated under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code in effect Dec. 31, 2020.  

The increased federal income tax deduction will reduce the amount of tax due on an Alabama individual income tax returns. 

“I am proud to sign this needed tax relief into law so that money will return directly into the hands of hardworking Alabamians,” said Ivey. “I commend the Alabama legislature for their work on this and look forward to this benefiting Alabama families this tax season.” 

For more information on how to receive this additional tax deduction or how to amend a current return if already filed, visit the Alabama Department of Revenue’s 2021 Federal Tax Deduction fact page: https://revenue.alabama.gov/arpa-tax-relief.
