The City of Chelsea contracts with a 3rd party (Alabama Department of Revenue) for the collection of sales & use, seller's use, and consumer's use taxes.  These taxes are remitted via ONESPOT with the jurisdiction/locality code 9158.

For business licenses, rental, and lodging taxes, we are self-collecting.  However, the rental and lodging taxes may be paid online via ONESPOT but the jurisdiction/locality code for those would be 9258 effective January 31, 2023.  If you have any problems or questions about your Chelsea lodging/rental taxes, please contact City Hall @ 205-678-8455.

Your City of Chelsea taxes may be remitted online through ONESPOT through the "Local Tax" account in the Alabama Department of Revenue's online filing system, My Alabama Taxes (MAT), the ONESPOT to file:
