West Virginia Bill to Exempt Older Vehicles From Property Tax Dies as Legislature Adjourns

Legislation to exempt motor vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, airplanes, trucks and tractors, that are older than twenty-five years from personal property taxes died when the legislature adjourned for the year.  Under the bill, these automobiles and motorcycles would have needed to display valid current antique licenses and could not have been used for daily transportation.  The bill recognized the fact that existing antique motor vehicles constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet and are well-maintained, infrequently operated hobby cars and deserving of property tax benefits. 

Thank you to those who participated in supporting this bill.
