MOUNTAIN BROOK, AL (WBRC) - Lawyers for a Mountain Brook dentist are trying to turn their lawsuit against Jefferson County into a class-action filing.
Dr. Jeffrey Weissman is suing the county over the newly approved occupational tax. His attorney claims it is unconstitutional for the county to tax certain professionals.
If the suit is successful, architects, lawyers, accountants, doctors, engineers and others who work in the county would be exempt from paying. The .45% tax goes into effect January first.
