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.
