Alabama - Driver's License/State ID Number Limited To 7 Characters

When selecting Alabama on the Provide your state ID information screen, TurboTax limits the ID number to 7 digits, but some Alabama IDs have 8.

To e-file an Alabama return, you must enter either a driver's license or another type of State issued ID. If you are entering an Alabama Driver's License, the license number must be exactly 7 digits.   Other types of State IDs may contain up to 8 characters.  

Be sure you make the appropriate selection when asked What type of state-issued ID do you have? on the screen just prior to entering the ID information.
