Dale County Judge Issues Injunction in Tax Dispute

A Dale County Circuit Court judge has issued a preliminary injunction barring local tax money collected in Dale County from being transferred to school systems in Dothan and Enterprise (located outside of Dale County) to fund students from Dale County attending schools there.  The injunction is in place until a January 10 hearing on the matter.

The Dale County Schools, Ozark City Schools, and Daleville City Schools filed the lawsuit after the Alabama Department of Education notified Dale County Revenue Commissioner Eleanor Outlaw that she should distribute some Dale County tax revenues to Enterprise and Dothan.
