Significant savings for data-based businesses

The "High-Technology Business Property Valuation Act" provides special property tax valuation for equipment and tangible personal property. The property tax is reduced to approximately five percent of the tax that would otherwise apply, based on the original cost of the property. In addition, sales tax is eliminated from all purchases of prewritten computer software, computers, computer hardware, servers, building materials and tangible personal property for direct use in a high-technology business or an internet advertising business. This legislation creates significant savings to data-based businesses located in the State of West Virginia.
