Purchases are exempt from sales tax. If a customer returns items to the store, no cash can be given to the customer. Since many children wear adult-size clothing, it may be purchased.
Rosen said vendors interested in accepting the voucher should call Patricia Nelson, the director of the Division of Payments and Vendor Maintenance, 304-356-4541.
"If a reader believes they should have received a voucher but did not, they should contact their local DHHR office/worker. The link to DHHR offices/phone numbers is http://www.wvdhhr.org/bcf/county/,"; Rosen said.
Billy Rasnake, manager of the Patrick Street Kmart store, said the system is better now for vendors than it has been in the past.
"They've made the paperwork easier for us to submit," he said.
Rosen was positive about the benefits of the voucher system.
"We love it -- it's a great program. At this time of year we get a lot of good feedback."
