House Subcommittee Hears Testimony on Mobile Workforce Act


On April 29, 2014, the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law (the “subcommittee”) held a hearing (the “hearing”) on the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2013 (H.R. 1129 or the “bill”). During the hearing, the Subcommittee heard testimony from four witnesses, three in support of the bill and one in opposition. As Full Committee Chairman Goodlatte stated in his opening remarks, if adopted into law, the bill “creates a bright-line thirty-day threshold to determine nonresident income tax liability . . . [and] ensures that employees will have a clear understanding of when they are liable for nonresident state income taxes and employers will be able to accurately withhold these taxes.”

In this alert, we summarize H.R. 1129, the testimony of the witnesses at the hearing and the outlook for this legislation in this 113th session of Congress.
