In accordance with Section 40-1-49, Code of Ala. 1975, as created by this Act, the Department of Revenue, by administrative rule, shall suspend the collection of a tax or fee when the cost of administering the collection of the tax exceeds the total amount of the tax collected for the previous three fiscal years.
