TEI Supports Passage of Mobile Workforce Legislation

On July 22, 2011, Tax Executives Institute submitted the following comments to the House Committee on the Judiciary and its Subcommittee on Courts, Commercial and Administrative Law, recommending the enactment of H.R. 1864, the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2011. TEI endorses federal legislation that would create a uniform standard for the state taxation of income earned by employees who travel for work, and the related withholding obligations of their employers.

The Institute's comments were prepared under the aegis of its State and Local Tax Committee, whose chair is Linda H. Dickens of Texas Instruments, Inc. Committee member Tov B. Haueisen of General Electric Company contributed materially to the preparation of the submission. Daniel B. De Jong, TEI Tax Counsel, serves as legal staff liaison to the committee and coordinated the preparation of the submission.
