CHARLESTON, WV –
Gov. Jim Justice has issued the following statement on Tax Day in West Virginia:
This Tax Day is a great day in West Virginia. Our state is really on the move with historic revenue numbers that remain on track for a significant year-end surplus, and we’ve been able to help lots of West Virginians save real money on their tax payments.
And even though many people thought that my plan to improve West Virginia’s aging transportation infrastructure through the Roads to Prosperity program would involve raising taxes after the bond passed, I’m proud to say that we are getting projects underway with NO NEW TAXES.
President Donald Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has also had a positive impact on our whole economy. Not only have these cuts allowed West Virginians to bring home more money in their paychecks, but they have also opened the door for more businesses to set up shop right here in West Virginia through the many Opportunity Zones in our state.
