Birmingham City Council Inviting the Public to Attend Public Hearing on Proposed Food Tax Rebate

Buying groceries in the City of Birmingham could soon become a little less expensive and residents of Birmingham couldn’t be more thrilled about the idea. Alabama is one of two states in the U.S who continues to apply sales tax fully to food purchases without providing any offsetting relief for low and moderate income families. Knowing this Birmingham City Council members are looking into ways they can provide financial relief to citizens in Birmingham through a Healthy Food Incentive Program.
