Sources of Tax Dollars in Jacksonville, Alabama

A wide variety of activities are subject to taxation in Jacksonville, Alabama, creating a massive range of revenue sources. For example, cities normally impose a sales tax, charge fees for certain licenses, and collect tolls on roads and bridges.

Sales Tax: In Jacksonville, the sales tax is a tax that's added to the price of goods at the point of sale. Normally, you have to pay a city sales tax on top of whatever sales tax is levied by . Usually, the local sales tax is much smaller than the state tax, which is normally in the area of 5-8%, with the city tax most often being less than one percent.

Licensing Fees: The city of Jacksonville may require business owners to get a license from the local government before they begin operating within city limits. Typically, the main hurdle involved in obtaining one of these licenses is paying a fee to the city government. Although these payments are called "fees" as opposed to "taxes," they operate in the same way, and serve largely the same purpose, as taxes.

Bridge/Road Tolls: Many larger cities in the U.S. charge tolls to enter the city via major highways or bridges. This amounts to a tax paid for the privilege of entering Jacksonville if it has such toll roads. Besides being a general source of revenue, these tolls require visitors to the city, who will have many city services available to them while they visit, to pay at least some contribution to these services.
