Code of Alabama - Title 11: Counties and Municipal Corporations - Section 11-51-206 - Levy of tax outside corporate limits

Section 11-51-206 - Levy of tax outside corporate limits.

The council or other governing body shall have the authority to levy and assess by ordinance within the police jurisdiction of any municipality or town all taxes authorized by this article; provided, that the levy and assessment shall not exceed one-half the amount levied and assessed for like businesses, sales or uses conducted within the corporate limits, fees and penalties excluded. All taxes adopted pursuant to this section shall be levied and assessed. No levy or assessment of a tax adopted by ordinance after September 1, 2015, shall take effect until a 30-day notice has been given of the adoption of the ordinance; provided, however, that no tax levy or assessment may be imposed under this section in an expanded police jurisdiction until the police jurisdiction expansion is effective under subsection (d) of Section 11-40-10. The notice given shall be the same as required for adoption of an ordinance in Section 11-45-8. Additionally, if available at no cost to the municipality, the 30-day notice shall be submitted to the Atlas Alabama state website or any successor state-operated website providing information to businesses. Each municipality shall prepare an annual report which shall include an accounting of all revenues collected in the expanded police jurisdiction after September 1, 2015, and provide a list of the services provided by the municipality and a list of providers within the police jurisdiction. A copy of the annual report, which shall be completed within 90 days of the close of the fiscal year, shall be forwarded to the Office of Examiners of Public Accounts and shall be made available to the public.
