The Association of Alabama Tax Administrators Announces
2017 Officer Induction

The Association of Alabama Tax Administrators (AATA) today announced its new slate of officers for the 2017-2018 tax year, beginning July 1, 2017.  The newly inducted AATA leadership, focused on elevating the profile of the state’s tax and licensing offices throughout all 67 Alabama counties, ensures the fair and equitable administration of the ad valorem tax and license tax laws of the State of Alabama.  

“Our goal, as we begin our terms of services,” said incoming AATA President Annie Wilson, “is to continue to improve the service we offer our area residents. We understand license administration and ad valorem taxes can be confusing, and we want to eliminate that confusion for our residents.” Wilson, who is the Sumter County Tax Collector, recently completed her term as president-elect, after previously serving as secretary and treasurer, before taking on the new leadership role as president.  

Educating staff and public consumers

Also beginning new terms of service are Teddy J. Faust, president-elect Baldwin County Revenue Commissioner; Debra Lamberth, treasurer Coosa County Revenue Commissioner; and Jeff Arnold, secretary Jackson County Revenue Commissioner. The new executive committee believes in the power of staff education to enhance customer experiences in their respective offices.

The new executive team is relaunching its emphasis on improving the knowledge and skills of staff members through joint efforts between the Alabama Department of Revenue, the Association, and Auburn University’s Government and Economic Development Institute.

“The Alabama Department of Revenue works with every county to ensure we understand legislative actions that make a difference to our communities,” said Teddy J. Faust. “Their cooperation, combined with formal educational opportunities allow us to offer excellent service to customers. We want to make the tax and licensing experiences as quick, friendly and efficient as possible today and for years to come. ”

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Association of Alabama Tax Administrators is to bring together by association, communication and organization, public officials who administer the ad valorem tax laws of Alabama;  to provide for the exchange among the members of this Association of such information, ideas, techniques and procedures relating to the performance of their duties pursuant to the ad valorem tax and license tax laws and regulations of the State of Alabama, and to enhance the knowledge and improve the skills of the members; to elevate the standards of service to the public in the performance of such services; and in general, to promote improvements in the administration of the ad valorem tax and license tax laws of the State of Alabama, to increase the quantity and quality of the services and contributions which the members make to the public and to their communities, state and nation, and to promote improvements in the working conditions of their employees.
