The Alabama Department of Revenue has finalized its proposed change to the due date for filing Forms W-2 with the state. The due date has been moved from the current date of February 28 to January 31. The rule was finalized on March 2, 2015 and takes effect on March 3, 2015. Since the rule date was changed so late in 2015 it doesn’t affect the 2014 Form W-2 filed in 2015. The due date is still February 28th. However effective with the Forms W-2 for 2015 filed in 2016 the deadline will be January 31, 2016.
