West Virginia MetroNews – West Virginia political leaders agree they’re interested in phasing out the state’s personal income tax, but just a few days before the annual legislative session begins no one is saying how. Read the full article.
“As for the absolute details on the personal income tax, not yet,” said Senate President Craig Blair, R-Berkeley. “It’s premature. February the 10th is not here. When the time is right, you’ll know.”
Blair has said he would like to phase out the tax. So has Gov. Jim Justice. Leaders in the House of Delegates have been less clear, although they have described a general interest in tax reform.
The legislative session kicks off this Wednesday, Feb. 10, with Governor Justice laying out his vision that evening during an annual State of the State address.
