BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson County Tax Assessor Dan Weinrib won his court battle Wednesday against the Jefferson County Commission.
A judge Wednesday afternoon ordered the county commission to restore the funding it cut last week from Weinrib's office.
Weinrib had sued the commission, saying his office is funded by property tax funds, not the illegal occupational tax funds, and that cuts to his office would be a "detriment" for bringing revenue into the county.
"The collector depends on us for correct billings," Weinrib said Wednesday. "If we can't deliver that in a timely matter, it will imperil tax collections."
