Alabama requires a "privilege license"; From the Dept of Revenue -
A privilege license is a license requirement of every person, firm, company or corporation engaged in any business, vocation, occupation or profession described in Title 40, Chapter 12, Code of Alabama 1975.
The State and County license(s) is issued by the county Probate Judge or License Commissioner in the county where the business is located. Unless otherwise provided, a license is required in every county where the business is conducted.
** In addition a city or local license may be required. Contact the proper place to determine if such is required.**
