Make Those Hillbillies Pay More Taxes!

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Gov. Jim Justice has signed a new law to ramp up road repairs and reconstruction across the state supported by a higher gasoline tax, raised sales tax on car sales and higher motor vehicle fees.

The bill approved last week by the Legislature could also support bonding for Justice's proposed highway rebuilding program.

Bonding is subject to a voter referendum later this year.

Justice says there are 500 road projects on the books now that can start.

The Democratic governor says bridge and highway rebuilding will add thousands of highway jobs and make the state more attractive to businesses.

The variable minimum wholesale gas tax will rise 3.5 cents a gallon, the vehicle sales tax will increase from 5 to 6 percent and registration fee from $30 to $50.

Note: West Virginia already has a very high gas tax and this will make it even worse.

West Virginia Is Broke. More Taxes To Pay Being Forced On White West Virginians!

Yet another plan to restructure taxes in West Virginia has been taken up by members of the House of Delegates.

The House Finance Committee was presented with their version of a Senate Bill 484.

The bill was initially presented to lawmakers by Gov. Jim Justice as a sweeping tax increase, raising some $450 million in new revenues since West Virginia is 500 million in the hole.

On July 1 of this year, salon services, contracting services, and cell phone bills would be subject to the sales tax. The exemptions for gym memberships, electronic data services, primary opinion research, and some direct use services would end on October 1.
