MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- House Republicans promise a fast start for a package of proposed changes to Alabama's tax code.
GOP leaders plan to start moving the bills out of committees that will meet Wednesday for the first time since the Legislature's annual session opened a day earlier.
Among the ideas is creating an independent body to oversee taxpayer disputes rather than the state Department of Revenue appointing administrative judges to settle disagreements.
Another bill proposes a $1,000 income tax credit for taxpayers who adopt a child, either through private adoption or the state foster system.
The GOP also wants to make it easier for some small businesses to avoid estimated sales tax payments, instead allowing them to wait and make payments based on actual revenues.
