Warner's plan would lower the income tax rates for Virginians making under 20 thousand a year.
It would also trim the grocery tax by a penny and a half.
And his plan would complete the phaseout of the car tax which has stalled at a 70% reduction and eliminate the estate tax on farms.
But clearly some Virginians will pay more.

Warner says his plan will raise 500 million dollars a year in new revenue.
Smokers would see a 22 and a half cent tax hike on cigarettes.
And consumers would see a one cent increase in the state's sales tax.
Warner is also tinkering with the age deduction.
Those already 65 and older will continue to receive the tax credit but seniors turning 65 after January 1, 2005, may not.
His plan also calls for closing corporate loopholes and taxing Internet purchases.
As well as increasing the tax rate on Virginians making over 100-thousand.
