URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
West Virginia Bill to Lower Personal Property Taxes on Antique Motor Vehicles Approved by Transportation Committee; Moves to Finance
Legislation (H.B. 2449) in the West Virginia Legislature to provide owners of antique motor vehicles with a fair and equitable personal property tax assessment was approved by the House Roads and Transportation Committee. The bills seek to address recent unfair valuation practices which have negatively impacted many West Virginia hobbyists. The bill now moves to the House Finance Committee for consideration.
We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Finance Committee (List Attached) Immediately To Request Their Support for H.B. 2449
West Virginia law defines an “Antique motor vehicle” to mean any motor vehicle which is more than twenty-five years old and is owned solely as a collector’s item.
H.B. 2449 provides that for the purposes of the property tax, the assessed value of an antique vehicle cannot exceed $200.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the West Virginia House Finance Committee immediately to request their support of H.B. 2449.
Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance. Thank you for your assistance.
