Alabama Prescription Sales Tax Increase

We received a notice on September 17th that a supplemental privilege tax of 15 cents for each prescription filled or refilled for a citizen of Alabama has been imposed for fiscal years 2016 and 2017. This tax went into effect on September 1, 2015. This tax is in addition to all other taxes.

If you want to set ALL insurance companies to send the total 25 cent
tax, do the following:

1. Type RJ from any menu to go to a prompt.
2. Type RXSETINS/STR to remove the current tax rate.
3. Type RXSETINS/STX5 to add the 25 cent tax to all insurances.
4. Type BYE to go back to the password screen and login.

If you only want to change the tax rate for insurances you are currently sending taxes, do the following:

1. Type RJ from any menu to go to a prompt.
2. Type RXSETINS/STG5 to change the 10 cent tax to 25 cents.
3. Type BYE to go back to the password screen and login.
