Mountain Brook Alabama has had an illegal tax increase on millage property taxes in 2020. The Jefferson County Tax Assessor has included the illegal .108884 property tax increase and it is at their website citizen portal now. In 2019 the Alabama Legislature passed Senate Bill 177 regarding a ten-millage rate annual tax increase for the city of Mountain Brook Alabama beginning in 2020. However the bill was not legal. A revenue increase bill must begin in the house, and it is a senate bill. It allows for only a citywide vote to increase millage tax, and that is not legal now in Alabama. The vote and now the tax increase on the city taxes, which calculate to be almost 11%, overall increase is illegal. I will paste the text of the bill here. Please know that Amendment 4 on the November 3, 2020 ballot if a big lie and with that amendment the legislators will have blank check authority to fix all the illegal things they have done wrong, like this bill. Here is the bill text and a link to the bill text. I cannot get this paper to print any truth about the illegal things Alabama Legislators are doing. If the citizens of Mountain Brook were to sue they would win, this is an illegal tax increase bill. If Amendment 4 passes, the legislators will be able to add amendments “thereto” which will give them blank check authority to increase any and all taxes, and make all illegal things done wrong to be the law. The amendment will then hide the Alabama constitution from public record access. I will write more on amendment 4. I made pictures of the text of the Mountain Brook bill that is illegal. The tax increase is illegal. Citizens could sue, but they do not know that. The ones who do know it is illegal lied. Birmingham also had an illegal school millage tax vote. Birmingham’s school taxes do not expire. There only needs to be a vote to increase millage taxes The millage rate increase vote must be either a countywide or statewide ballot measure. That requirement will disappear if Amendment 4 passes in November. I will write more on that soon. http://alisondb.legislature.state.al.us/ALISON/SearchableInstruments/2019RS/PrintFiles/SB177-enr.pdf
