Debate to Repeal Personal Income Tax in West Virginia Continues

WOWK TV, Tax News Daily – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice held virtual a town hall Monday afternoon to discuss his proposal to repeal the state’s personal income tax. Read the full article.

“Well I’ve outlined it a bunch of times and everything. We need our natural resources partners to help out just a little bit, we need to go up probably just a percent and a half to maybe 1.9 percent in regard to our sales tax,” said Governor Justice, when asked if other taxes will go up.

But critics are saying, this idea won’t work. “West Virginians would actually see their taxes go up if you add in a sales tax, or if you add in a raise in certain professional services, most West Virginians aren’t going to see a tax break but a tax hike,” said Delegate Mike Pushkin (D) – Kanawha.
