28041 – Burns v. Greenville County Council

Greenville County Council implemented what it called a "road maintenance fee" to raise funds for road maintenance and a "telecommunications fee" to upgrade public safety telecommunication services. The plaintiffs claim the two charges are taxes and, therefore, violate section 6-1-310 of the South Carolina Code (2004). We agree. We declare the road maintenance and telecommunications taxes are invalid under South Carolina law.
