SUPREME COURT-TAX DATA
W.Va. Supreme Court rules computerized tax assessment data must be disclosed

Reported by: Associated Press
Friday, June 6, 2014 3:01 AM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The West Virginia Supreme Court has ruled that computerized tax assessment information maintained by the government is not exempt from public disclosure.

The justices on Thursday overturned a Kanawha County Circuit Court judge's finding that the appraisal files used by county tax assessors to help determine home values do not have to be disclosed under the state Freedom of Information Act. Government officials argued that the data included sensitive information that might include whether a homeowner had a burglar alarm, whether a home was vacant because the homeowner was in a nursing home or other private information.

The Charleston Gazette reports that the justices ruled that while some private information might be exempt, public bodies have a duty to redact that information and disclose the rest.
