Alabama – Raise Sales Tax or Decrease Use Tax? by Michele Gerlach – December 9, 2015

“To avoid being sued, the Covington County Commission needs to reduce the county’s sales and use tax, or increase its sales tax.

Brooks said the Covington County – as well as many other counties in Alabama – has been notified by the Alabama Department of Revenue that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a Missouri case that having a higher use tax than sales tax is a violation of the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.”
