Include more in exemption

In recommending that the retirement incomes of military personnel be exempted from West Virginia state personal income tax legislators Mike Azinger and John Kelly have overlooked other deserving groups more closely associated with the safety and welfare of West Virginia citizens.

Why are the retirement incomes of local police not included? And of our WV State Police? And of our sheriff’s departments? As well as those of fire departments and EMT personnel?

I hope that members of these groups, their families and their professional representatives will contact legislators Azinger and Kelly for inclusion in their state personal income tax exemption plan.
