Anniston Considering Occupational Tax for Non-residents

People who live in another city but work in Anniston could soon have to pay an occupational tax. The city of Anniston more than doubles in population during the work week. 80 percent of the people who work in Anniston do not live in the city. Councilman David Reddick wants to look into a possible occupational tax. The proposal calls for a one percent tax for those who drive into Anniston for work. Reddick says the occupational tax would equal less than two dollars a day. Revenue for the proposed occupational tax would support improvements to Anniston's infrastructure. Reddick and other councilmen discussed the occupational tax and the possibility of public hearings during today's regular council meeting.
