Gov. Justice signs bill eliminating State Film Tax Credit


​CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice signed legislation (SB 263) into law today that eliminates the West Virginia Film Tax Credit.

“We recognized that the West Virginia Film Tax Credit program was not performing the way that it should and the right thing to do was move in another direction,” said Gov. Justice. “Tourism has advised us without question that these funds will be better spent somewhere else.”

The effective date is from passage which was January 26, 2018.​
