Virginians are getting a tax break sooner than expected... thanks to a budget surplus.
Governor Mark Warner delivered the news this morning to the General Assembly's money committees.
Warner said the surplus means that an increase in each taxpayer's personal exemption will take effect one year earlier than scheduled.
The state ended the fiscal year with a nearly 324 million dollar surplus.
Some Republicans say the extra money shows that the recently passed tax increases were not necessary.
