House Committee Approves Mobile Workforce Bill

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee on March 22 passed legislation that would simplify state income tax return filing for employees who work in more than one state.
 
In a 19-2 vote, the committee approved the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2017 (H.R. 1393). The measure would allow employee earnings to be fully taxed in the employee’s state of residence but the same employee would not be subject to other states’ taxes unless they worked in those states for at least 30 days.
