HERE’S WHY:

  • State Leaders have proposed a bill to raise over a half billion in new taxes.
  • This is the largest tax increase in the history of West Virginia!
  • Sales Taxes will be increased as much as 31-percent.
  • WV will have the highest consumer sales tax in the nation at the rate of 7.9% (then add the 1% municipal tax) Higher than California, New York and surrounding states.
  • This increase could not happen at a worse time, businesses and families are struggling coming out of this devastating pandemic.
  • The taxes proposed will send an anti-business signal and give unfair advantage to out-of-state competitors.
  • A tax on advertising hinders public access to news and information. 40 states have considered and rejected the idea.
  • Businesses on the boarder will experience huge losses with this plan.
  • Business and families will be impacted by more than just one or two of these taxes. The combination will greatly add to their bottom line.
  • The proposal still leaves a funding gap of $152 million dollars.
  • Businesses will think twice before coming to WV or staying here with this tax hike.
