ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the legislative, judicial, and administrative developments that affect income, business privilege, and property taxes in Alabama in 2010. The courts concluded that a taxpayer's sale of unitary operating assets created nonbusiness income. The Alabama Reemployment Act of 2010-557 provides an income tax deduction for employers creating jobs for unemployed persons. Republican Governor-elect Robert Bentley states that he does not intend to increase taxes.
