This week, key Republican policymakers in Washington unveiled a framework outlining their proposed tax reform goals. While the framework is light on details – this isn’t legislative text, after all – it does provide some insight into what the bill’s writers are thinking. For instance, on corporate reforms the framework would lower the tax rate on corporations to 20%, and tax passthroughs at 25%. It would allow businesses to “write off” or expense investment costs – so long as those investments aren’t structures – for at least five years.

The House of Representatives this week, passed the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act (H.R. 1393) by a simple voice vote. Passage of the bill with such broad, bipartisan support should send a message to the Senate that it’s now time for that chamber to act accordingly and deliver its own bill (S. 540) for the president’s signature immediately. Many in the IT industry have been monitoring the proposal closely, as it reflects a changing economic landscape and would streamline some of our tax collection laws.
