The City of Chelsea contracts with a 3rd party (Avenu Insights & Analytics) for the collection of sales & use, seller's use, and consumer's use taxes.  For business license, rental, and lodging taxes, we are self-collecting.  

For non-tax debts that are delinquent, the City of Chelsea utilizes MIS (Municipal Intercept Service) to assist in collecting those debts. MIS is a program that helps municipalities recover debts from Alabama State Income Tax refunds as allowed by the Alabama Legislature in 2014.  Examples of debts MIS collects are as follows:

  • Municipal Court Fines and Fees
  • Library Fees
  • Fire/EMS billings
  • Returned Check Fees
