Alabama now has a requirement that any organization with 50 employees must file electronically. We produce a standard file in MMREF format. Alabama has changed that format, and has a program on their website which allows the user to convert the file that FundWare produces to the format Alabama wants. They are extracting only RS records for Alabama and removing carriage returns and linefeeds.

To get instructions and convert the W2Report file go to the Alabama website, http://www.revenue.alabama.gov/withholding/online/W2FileInstr.htm and follow the instructions to download the utility that converts the file. It is the AL_Export_Utility that corrects the carriage returns and creates a new file named ALW2Report.
