house Bill H.R. 1393

Simplifying Income Tax Requirements for Employees Who Work Multiple Days Per Year Out of State

Argument in favor

Workers who travel out of state and their employers shouldn’t have to deal with burdensome reporting and withholding requirements unless the worker spends more than 30 days working in a state they don’t reside in.

Taxpayer should be taxed based upon their state of residence, regardless of where they are working.

As a Cirque du Soleil artist who toured around the USA, the amount of tax paper work that had to be done was ridiculous. Income TAXATION IS THEFT. **I believe in the principles discussed in the Declaration of Independence. All individuals have rights, and governments should protect those rights. An income tax is a violation of those rights, and a good government would never do that! ** Pass the #FairTax! Google #NonAggressionPrinciple

What a novel and clever idea. What about out of country while you're working on it?

Argument opposed

Workers who travel out of state and their employers should be subject to the withholding and reporting requirements of the state they don’t reside in. The 30 day threshold is too and this would diminish state tax revenues.

There are real issues facing the tax code. Issues like loopholes for corporations that allow them to deduct too many things, loopholes that allow them to hide wealth in other countries. The obscenely low rate for the uber wealthy. The fact is income inequality is a very real and very dangerous threat to America. It must be addressed and the Senate should follow Senator Sanders lead on this issue. The wealthy should not be able to pay less then someone of the middle or lower class. It's obscene and immoral. We need real changes to the tax code to address the issue of income inequality and allow for sufficient funding for federal and state level programs. This bill will just allow corporations to get around paying state taxes by sending employees for a day or two less than 30 days so as not to trigger having to pay taxes. It worsens the income inequality facing the nation and I hope that you will not stand for it. America can do better than allowing the rich to have it all

I can hear it now. We are sending you for 29 days. This bill isn't about the employee it's about the employer. Just pay the state what they are due.

    All taxes should be simplified. The current process is inexcusable and punishes, once again, people without money for an accountant.

    States deserve to receive tax from whomever is employed there. Pay taxes wherever you earn your living. States work hard to create jobs.

    This would work well if the employee and employer knew at the start how long they would be working in a different state. What if the total time over the course of the entire year passed the 30 mark - do you all of a sudden have all the taxes for the entire time taken out of one paycheck? Wouldn't there then be a penalty for not paying the taxes in a timely fashion? There are also no detail for how the time is figured - is it only working days in the state or total time spent in the state?

    As a small business owner where travel is part of the position, the need to navigate each state's different regulations is currently over complicated. Having a consistent 30 day policy would simplify taxes and allow my company to travel to any state without worry about not following different states laws.

    Do away with the Income Tax all together. Think of the money 💰 that would be pumped into the economy. Let me spend my money the way I see fit. Besides, the only thing the Federal Government should be providing me is Common Defense. Everything else is BS.

    This would help make it easier for a mobile workforce to not be taxed more than a traditional occupation.

    Another bill that puts money in the rich people's pockets and not the middle class of the United States. I hope the Republicans realize their time is about over. 2018 can't come soon enough!!!

    I support this, so long as the state in which you reside or work for the bulk of the year/month taxes the income for the time spent working elsewhere. We cannot let this become a loophole for avoiding payment of state taxes.

    State income allocations are complicated and just provide a way for states to gain income they aren't entitled to at the expense of the taxpayer. Every state has different rules and planning and preparing multi state tax returns is expensive and if not done right, subjects taxpayers to high interest and penalties. It also burdens already strained HR departments who are required to withhold appropriately based on the employee's work location without any real system to do so correctly.
