Charleston, West Virginia (AP) — Governor of West Virginia Jim Justice held an online discussion to facilitate his proposal to eliminate the state’s income tax.
The Republican Governor addressed a written question submitted by the general public on the proposal on Wednesday, which was revealed in a state speech earlier this month.
But he did little to fill in the details in many areas.
To balance the income tax cut, Justice wants to raise sales tax and tobacco and soda taxes for all residents.
The goal is to promote economic investment and population growth.
West Virginia has lost more than 3% of its population in the last decade.
