Earl Ray Tomblin on Corporations

 


Relax rules on paying terminated employees within 3 days

Under our law, employers are required to pay employees within 72 hours after leaving or face significant damages and lawsuits. Small businesses do not need the hassle of re-running payroll every time an employee moves on. Employers should be permitted more flexibility to pay these employees. It's a simple fix--but it's one that will make a big difference to our small businesses.

Sales tax credit for new business; & tax increment financing

I believe there are steps we can take to make West Virginia more attractive to businesses. We lack a sales tax credit to assist distribution and fulfillment businesses with some up-front costs for expanding or locating in W.V.

I also believe we need to overhaul our tax increment financing program. This program allows local communities to use future gains in taxes to finance current economic development projects. [We should] refocus our efforts at creating these economic, job-creating districts.
