Property Tax Relief Proposals Move

The House of Delegates Committee on Constitutional Revision today recommended passage of an amendment to the West Virginia Constitution to give counties the option of increasing homestead property tax exemptions for senior citizens and the disabled (HJR 113). The committee also recommended passage of a constitutional amendment to enable the Legislature to provide property tax relief for individuals actively serving in the armed forces (HJR 114). Further consideration of both of these proposals now will be reviewed by the House of Delegates Finance Committee.

Since both the above proposals are constitutional amendments, a two-thirds approval vote also will be required by the Legislature and thereafter a majority approval vote by voters in the next election before the proposed amendments become law.

  1. Mr Kump;
    I happen to agree with amendments being proposed by the Legislation.
    Seriously, thank you and those sponsoring these amendments. I believe its the right thing to do for our Veterans while serving and our Senior and Disabled.
