Bill Targets Taxation of Nonresidents


States could face new limits on how they impose income taxes on nonresidents if a House proposal becomes law. Under the terms of the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Fairness and Simplification Act of 2007 (HR 3359), introduced by Rep. Henry C. Johnson Jr., D-Ga., a state or locality could assess income taxes on an out-of-state worker’s wages only if the individual spends more than 60 days working in that state for the calendar year. Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, is co-sponsoring the bill.

Some states currently tax individuals who work in the state for as little as one day. Several other states follow the 60-day rule that the federal legislation would make uniform. The full text of the bill is available at www.thomas.gov .
