Nonresident withholding bill cleared for House action


The U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a markup November 17, 2011, on H.R. 1864, the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2011. Introduced May 12, 2011, the legislation would simplify the onerous burdens placed on employees who travel outside of their resident states for temporary periods and on employers who have corresponding withholding requirements. At the markup, a manager's amendment making technical, non-substantive modifications to the bill language was adopted by the Committee, and a substantive amendment was rejected by voice vote. H.R. 1864 was reported favorably by the Committee to the House (H.R. 1864, as amended).
