A taxpayer is allowed a credit, not to exceed two thousand dollars in a taxable year, against the tax imposed by the provisions of this article for volunteer work performed for an entity which qualifies for exemption from federal income taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For each hour of volunteer work performed, a taxpayer is allowed a credit in an amount equal to the state average hourly wage for that taxable year, as determined by the State Division of Labor.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to allow a credit against the West Virginia personal income tax for volunteer work for nonprofit organizations.
