- Excerpt from Nonresident Owner Nexus:

Chief Administrative Law Judge Bill Thompson of the Alabama Department of Revenue upheld the imposition of the state’s mandatory composite income tax on an Alabama LLC owned in part by a nonresident who resided abroad. In his ruling, Judge Thompson reasoned that it was irrelevant whether the state had jurisdiction over the nonresident member , who lived in Greece, because the statutory composite filing/payment requirement was imposed on the LLC, which clearly had a sufficient nexus with the state to permit Alabama to enforce collection of the tax through the composite filing.
