WV Senate declines to take up personal income tax reduction – Gov. Justice issues statement

CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice issued the following statement today after the West Virginia Senate declined to take up his proposal to permanently reduce the personal income tax by 10%:

“I continue to believe with all in me that West Virginia can be like Florida, Texas, and Tennessee – with a booming economy and population, built on people moving into states with no personal income tax. We have the best people, best natural resources, four of the best seasons, and are located within a rock’s throw of two-thirds of our country’s population. Without a personal income tax, our potential is limitless.”
