West Virginia Individual Income Tax Provisions

States have the option of taxing residents on their earned income, and in doing so are allotted three different methods for filing: joint, combined, and a mixture of the two. West Virginia uses a joint filing system which allows married couples to combine their incomes together to create a single amount which can be taxed. This promotes the idea that a family is a single economic unit and should be taxed as such.

West Virginia uses the federal adjusted gross income as a tax base, and while many of the same stipulations apply at the state level, there are a few differences from the federal law which are worth noting.

Exemptions

Certain sources of income are not taxable, and are subject to exemptions:

  • Interest from U.S. government bonds
  • Retirement income for state law enforcement and fireman plans
  • Up to $2,000 in civil service and public pensions
  • Active duty military CZE and reservists and National Guard pay for those called to serve by a presidential order

Deductions

While West Virginia doesn't have a standard or itemized deduction provision, there are other state-level deductions that taxpayers can take when filing their taxes:

  • Up to $8,000 for those age 65+ or permanently and totally disabled (up to $8,000 for the year following such a person's death for their spouse)
  • Earned income credit for low income taxpayers
  • Contributions to state prepaid tuition and college savings programs
  • Long-term care insurance premiums
  • Autism trust contributions
  • Certain state "EZ Pass" expenditures
