Today, the Texas Society of CPAs asked Senator John Cornyn and Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-18) and Pete Sessions (R-32) to cosponsor H.R. 1129/S. 1645, the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act. Both Jackson Lee and Sessions cosponsored the House bill that passed by voice vote last year, but stalled in the Senate. The Mobile Workforce bill would establish a uniform national standard governing the withholding of state income taxes for non-resident employees. It would not apply to professional athletes, professional entertainers, and certain public figures.
