Bill would prevent cities from adopting new occupational taxes

The Alabama Senate has unanimously approved legislation that would prevent cities without an occupational tax from adopting one in the future.

 SB305 by Sen. Jimmy Holley, R-Elba, next goes to the House County and Municipal Government Committee.

The legislation does not affect current occupational taxes. In the future, an occupational tax could only be adopted by the Alabama Legislature through a local law.
