The West Virginia Judiciary promulgates the Rules for Admission to the Practice of Law in West Virginia. Rule 8.0, which governs Pro Hac Vice admissions for out of state attorneys, was last revised and became effective on January 1, 2015. The current fee is $350 per attorney, per year, per individual taxpayer in which a case or multiple cases are involved. Applications are available from the WV Bar Association at www.wvbar.org However, the acceptance of participating local attorneys to this venue are at the discretion of the Office of Tax Appeals. Out of state and local attorneys will receive legal orders from this office reflecting docket numbers and attorney names involved. The taxpayer names will be REMOVED, as these orders are published now on the WV State Bar website. The Office of Tax Appeals will see that the Bar receives these orders for posting. Under no circumstances can we permit the public posting of taxpayer information according to §11-10-5D and §11-10A-23.
