WASHINGTON – CompTIA, the world’s leading technology association, released the following statement from CompTIA’s executive vice president for public advocacy Elizabeth Hyman following the House passage of the Mobile Workforce Act.
"CompTIA applauds the House of Representatives on the passage of the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act. It is imperative that our tax code catch up with the reality of today's digital economy. Technology allows for employees to work remotely, bring problem solving skills and tools with them, and meet customer needs from anywhere in the country. This legislation would make it easier for employees and employers to comply with state personal income tax laws, which can be especially burdensome for workers who are increasingly traveling across state lines. We hope the Senate will act soon to pass its own identical bill.”
