No one understands the difficulties and complexities of tax filings for mobile workers better than CPAs. H.R. 1393, otherwise known as the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act, could be the solution, as it seeks to enact more forgiving tax laws for interstate workers.
But what does H.R. 1393 do, and how big of an impact could it have?
A recent survey of 811 employees found 502 of them, or 62 percent, have traveled for work in the last 12 months. Of those 502 mobile workers, half visited three or more states.
“You see it more and more, given the nature of technology,” says Dan Thrailkill, CPA and director at Ellin & Tucker. “For example, an employee might travel to Florida for the warm weather, but if they continue to work while they’re there, they’re going to be generating revenue, on the business’s behalf, in the state of Florida.”
In this recent article for CPA Practice Advisor, Dan Thrailkill, a director in the firm’s Tax department, contributed his insight into the tax implications of the evolving mobile workforce landscape.
