iPetitions screenshot - Tax increase opposition in Alabama

Screenshot from iPetitions for opposition to tax increase.

One of our readers sent us a link yesterday to this online petition for residents against the proposed increases in sales tax and business license fees in Birmingham. It will be interesting to see how many signatures are collected. It’s not the only development from over the weekend as our local newspaper of record decided to share its thoughts on Sunday (and we already told you about the piece in this week’s Birmingham Times).

We’d love to know if there are any more petitions out there either in support or against the proposals. Contact us using any of the methods listed on our contact page.

This website caused some confusion for me. Is the proposed increase for professional license fees, or business licenses, or both?
