Cutting State Income Tax Will Only Hurt the Poor

Times West Virginian – In fiscal year 2019, West Virginia’s state income tax brought in $2.09 billion to state coffers to fund nearly half of the state’s services needed to provide a decent quality of life in the Mountain State. Read the full article.

Now, Gov. Jim Justice and the Republican supermajority are bent on cutting — with the full-blown goal of eventually eliminating — the state’s income tax. However, no one has stepped forward with a solid, logical plan to replace that $2.09 billion needed to run state government.

We urge the governor and the Legislature to pump the brakes on this regressive plan before making a tragic mistake.
