West Virginia Gives Sales Tax Breaks to Flood Victims

May 21, 2009

West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin has suspended the state’s sales and use taxes on certain home sales and materials for flood victims.

Those affected by floods in Boone, Logan, McDowell, Mingo, Raleigh and Wyoming counties will not have to pay sales tax on mobile homes, house trailers, modular homes or similar units or building materials necessary for repairs caused by recent flooding. Sales tax also is exempt on bottled water and cleanup supplies.

The executive order expires June 10.

To qualify, buyers must complete a flood exemption certificate, which is available from the West Virginia Tax Department.

Those who already have made purchases are eligible for a refund.
