Jeffco attorneys motion to dismiss occutax lawsuit

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -  Jefferson County attorneys file a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against the county's new occupational tax.
A lawsuit was filed that stated the new tax was illegal because it included other professionals and because the plaintiffs believe the county improperly advertised the new tax.

Jefferson County attorneys say the plaintiff's attorneys did not properly file the suit.

If the county loses, it could take $60-million out of the county coffers.
