Governor Ralph Northampanen will sign a bill Thursday that will make it easier for Virginia millionaires to get their tax cuts.
The bill passed by the state Senate and House this week would give a tax break of up to $1 million to the richest 20% of households in the state.
The plan, if signed by the governor, would make it the first state to give a significant tax cut to the wealthy.
The Senate and the House also passed legislation Thursday that would allow people who earn more than $100,000 a year to take advantage of the new state-approved tax break.
The governor has not said whether he will sign the bill.
It will go into effect for the 2018 tax year.
A spokesperson for Northam did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the bill Thursday.
