Justice Signs Bill Lowering Coal Severance Tax

WV Metro News – In front of West Virginia coal miners, Gov. Jim Justice signed a bill lowering severance taxes on thermal or steam coal in West Virginia from five percent to three percent. Read full article.

Justice had a signing ceremony Wednesday at the Harrison County Coal Company’s Harrison County Mine in Mannington, signing into law House Bills 635, 3142, and 3144.

“It’s two total percent over three years, so the way that all shakes out, it probably is somewhere around .66 of one percent,” Justice said following the ceremony.
