Copyfeatures_management with joined table Q

I need some help on a script that i am putting together.
Script is as follows.

1. Select feature
2. Export the selected feature
3. Load the export feature
4. Label the feature

I have a shapefile with a joined table in Arcmap. The script runs fine until it gets to the labeling part. I get back Acres filed does not exist to lable. I check the "NewFeatures" layer and i noticed that the attributes fields names were named after the feature class name like vector_D_3, Vector_D4, etc.. and not the actual tables names.

I have attached a picture of what the tables looks after the copyfeatures_management.

Here is my code.
import arcpy,os, sys import arcpy.mapping # Set workspace arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/Temp" arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = 'True'  directory="C:/Temp/Split.pdf" if os.path.exists(directory):     try:         os.remove(directory)     except:         print "Exception: ",str(sys.exc_info()) else:     print 'File not found at ',directory  #arcpy.RefreshActiveView()  mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("current") df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "Layers")[0] lyr = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "TaxParcels")[0] df.extent = lyr.getSelectedExtent() df.scale = 5000  if int(arcpy.GetCount_management("TaxParcels").getOutput(0)) > 0:          #arcpy.CopyFeatures_management("TaxParcels", "C:/temp/NewFeatures.shp")     arcpy.Select_analysis("TaxParcels", "C:/temp/NewFeatures.shp")  #Adding Labels layer = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "NewFeatures")[0]  if layer.supports("LABELCLASSES"):     for lblclass in layer.labelClasses:         lblclass.className = "vector_D_1" #This should be Account         lblclass.expression = "[vector_D_1] & VBNewLine & Round([vector_D_5],2)" #these should be "ACCOUNT" & "ACRES"     lblclass.showClassLabels = True layer.showLabels = True  arcpy.RefreshActiveView()  arcpy.mapping.ExportToPDF(mxd,"C:/Temp/Split.pdf", "")
