MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — West Virginians can now see how their tax dollars are being used, courtesy of a new state website.
West Virginia State Auditor John McCuskey held press conferences in Martinsburg on Monday morning and then in Charleston Monday afternoon to unveil the state’s new website dubbed “www.wvcheckbook.gov” that will provide citizens a graphic snapshot on spending by the various state government departments.
McCuskey introduced the website with a visual demonstration by technical consultants from both the State Auditor’s Office and OpenGov.
“This site has been built in a way that will be efficient and user-friendly for all of our citizens who seek to track and examine where their tax dollars are being spent,” McCuskey said. “These figures will be available by agency and vendor for both purchasing and payments through wvCheckbook, which is a tab on the site. Any electronic copies of data or documents will be posted and constantly updated.”
