The AICPA is supporting the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2011, introduced by Reps. Howard Coble, R-N.C., and Hank Johnson, D-Ga. This bill would establish a threshold of 30 days a year for a state to be able to tax a nonresident employee's income. The bill would benefit employees and their companies who travel for work. Currently states have widely divergent thresholds, leading to employees having to file income tax returns in multiple states, in some cases even if they worked there for only a day.
