West Virginia Governor Signs Tax Reform Bill Into Law

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

West VirginiaWest Virginia Governor Jim Justice signed into law a SEMA-supported tax reform bill that includes a 100% rebate on the state's property tax on cars, trucks and ATVs. This action comes after West Virginia’s voters defeated a 2022 ballot initiative (Amendment 2) that would have given state lawmakers the power to exempt these vehicles from personal property taxes.

In West Virginia, lawmakers do not have the authority to eliminate taxes on motor vehicles. In previous years, SAN-supported bills to eliminate property taxes on classic vehicles have been ruled unconstitutional. Thanks to Gov. Justice and the General Assembly, such legislation is no longer necessary.
