Shoals group forms to oppose school tax

(WAFF) - If you live in Muscle Shoals, soon you'll decide if you want to pay more in property taxes to fund some education projects.

The polls open August 28th on the $5 million ad valorem tax, but a new group has formed to oppose the tax.

"Stop the Home Tax PAC" will meet Tuesday night at the Teamsters Local Union Building, according to our news partners at the Times Daily.

The additional revenue from the tax would generate $50 for every $100,000 of appraised property value.

School officials say the money would be used to build a new elementary school, a new high school band facility, and safe rooms.
