WVC 36 - 4 - 10
§36-4-10. Covenant to pay taxes.
A covenant by the lessee in a lease "to pay the taxes," or a
covenant of like import, shall have the effect of a covenant that
all taxes, levies, and assessments upon the demised premises, or
upon the lessor on account thereof, shall be paid by the lessee
or those claiming under him: Provided, however,
assessment for a permanent local improvement, such as paving the
street or sidewalk, or other such improvement, and no tax levied
upon the income of the lessor derived from such leased premises,
shall be chargeable to the lessee, unless it is expressly so
provided in the lease.
