MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

More than eight months after he stopped coming to work, Marshall County's Revenue Commissioner is back on the job.

Joey Masters is now located in a single remote office on the second floor of the Albertville Courthouse, more than 10 miles away from the main office in the Guntersville Courthouse.

The State Revenue Department officially took over the office in January after an audit turned up Masters had given property tax breaks to himself and family members.

"I was asked last week by the State Department of Revenue to provide office space in the Albertville Courthouse and that's my job is to provide the Revenue Commission office space," said Marshall County Commission Chairman James Hutcheson.

Masters has said mistakes were made, but there was no criminal wrongdoing.

County Commissioner Bill Stricklend has been calling for the cutting of Masters' pay for not showing up to work. Now he questions how much work Masters is getting done.

Calls to the state revenue department, asking what kind of work Masters would be doing, were not returned.
