West Virginia: “Boots to Business” Bill

In mid-March, the West Virginia House of Delegates and the State Senate unanimously agreed to pass Senate Bill 316, also known as the “Boots to Business” bill. The purpose of the bill is to support those who have served our country by waiving registration fees and the first four annual report fees for any new business started by a veteran—a potential savings of up to $200. The Secretary of State’s office will absorb the cost of waiving the fees, meaning taxpayers won’t have to shell out any additional money. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin signed the bill into law on April 1, meaning registration fee waivers will begin for veteran businesses on July 1, 2015.
