If payment for the full amount of tax due is not paid by the due date of the return, you will be charged interest and will be subject to penalties. See Penalties and Interest on page 17. More importantly, if you submit your return without payment, a final assessment may be entered by the Department. A final assessment which is not appealed is as conclusive as a judgment of a circuit court. The Department may then proceed with collection by issuance of legal processes including recording of tax liens, garnishment of wages or bank accounts, levy, or a writ of seizure directed to the county sheriff as provided by Sections 40-1-2, 40-2-11(16), and 40-29-23, Code of Alabama 1975.
