  • The person who is conditionally certified may not issue a final audit report or billing unless such final audit report or billing is signed by a supervisor who is either certified or exempt from certification.
  • The person must enroll in the next available course of the certification program adopted by the Board of the Alabama Local Tax Institute of Standards and Training.
  • The person must complete an Application for Conditional Certification and submit it, accompanied by the $25.00 application fee, for approval by the Board of the Alabama Local Tax Institute of Standards and Training.
