Contact Congress Now: Senate Votes This Afternoon on 1099 Repeal!

We've been updating you on congressional efforts to overturn Section 9006 of the new health care law that mandates small-business owners to file a 1099 form for every business-to-business transaction over $600 a year. We expect the Senate will debate and vote on this issue by the end of today!

Write, email or call your senators and tell them to vote "yes" on S.Amdt.161 to S.493, the SBIR/STTR Reauthorization Act of 2011. This amendment is the exact same language you succeeded in getting the U.S. House of Representatives to pass earlier this month.  Passage of this bill by the Senate will finally ensure that it becomes a law. Visit the Contact Congress page to act now.

Remember, this new reporting requirement has nothing to do with improving your access to affordable and quality health care. It simply forces photographers like you to spend more time on tax compliance rather than running a business. Read more about the importance of eliminating this tax provision here.
