State delegates will host a town hall hearing this evening in Bluefield on tax reform.

Delegates Marty Gearheart, John Shott and Joe Ellington, all of Mercer County, will host the hearing to hear citizens’ ideas and comments on potential state tax reform proposals.

The hearing at the Bluefield High School Performing Arts center will run from 5:30 to 7:30.

The full committee held a separate public comment hearing October 20th in the House of Delegates chamber in Charleston. But Gearheart wants to give people in the southern part of the state who couldn’t get to Charleston a chance for their views to be heard.

All comments at the hearing will be documented and recorded so they can be submitted to the full tax reform committee.
