Three quarters of Virginians are paying too much in taxes.
Some argue it's because reducing the amount that's withheld requires writing for permission from the Department of Taxation.
State lawmakers passed a bill more than a decade ago to make that process easier, but they've been voting to delay the law ever since.
Tax officials estimate Virginia would lose millions if the law were implemented.
Another bill to delay the implementation is in the General Assembly, this year.
But some say it may have a harder time than usual because of the state's budget surplus.

(( Robert Bennett was just two years old when he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.. a disorder that has robbed him of his muscular power and coordination for the last five decades.
He can walk with the aid of crutches, but a wheelchair has been his most constant companion since he was a young boy.

Now Bennett is no longer content to sit on the sidelines.
Over the past few years, he's become a familiar face and voice speaking out on behalf of the handicapped on issues affecting disabled persons.
He's launching his own consultant service to help promote the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Now, for the first time, he's ready to become a politician.

So Bennett plans to gather the necessary signatures and put himself on the ballot as the Ward Two candidate in this May's city council election.
Naturally, handicapped issues will be a major component of his campaign, but he's also targeting a proposed increase in the city's sales tax.. something Bennett feels would unfairly burden the disabled and elderly.
