TSCPA Asks Texas House Members to Support the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Bill

TSCPA joins other state CPA societies in urging House of Representatives members to support H.R. 1129 the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act. The proposal would substantially simplify state income tax law by imposing standards for nonresident taxation and employer withholding. It would require employers to withhold state taxes on income only after a 30-day threshold has been met and to catch up all required withholding at that time. The bill contains a carve out for entertainers and professional athletes. AICPA, TSCPA and other state societies have pushed for this legislation since 2007.

TSCPA Asks Texas Members of Congress to Cosponsor Tax Due Date Reform Bill

TSCPA joins other state CPA societies in urging lawmakers to cosponsor H.R. 901 (and companion S. 420) Tax Reform Due Date Simplification Act of 2013. The proposal creates a logical set of due dates focused on allowing a more timely flow of information from pass-through entities to their owners. It also would promote the early filing of more business and personal returns and relieve some of the workload compression surrounding the September 15 business return deadline. AICPA, TSCPA and other state societies have pushed for this legislation since 2008.
