Second Chance to Ask for a "Yes" Vote on 1099 Repeal! - PPA Today

Second Chance to Ask for a "Yes" Vote on 1099 Repeal!

After the Senate's efforts failed to queue up a vote on repeal bill S.Amdt.161 on Tuesday, March 30, they have now committed to a series of votes on Monday.  We expect their vote will lead to the reversal of this harmful tax reporting requirement.

To hurry along the possibility of this key piece of legislation becoming law, the Senate has consented to debate and vote on H.R. 4--the exact same language you succeeded in getting the House to pass--instead of S.Admt.161 as proposed by Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE).

Remember: The movement to overturn Section 9006 of the new health care law (mandating small-business owners to file a 1099 form for every business-to-business transaction over $600) began last Congress and is now inches from the finish line. Reversing this burdensome tax requirement will allow photographers like you to spend more time investing in their business and focusing on clients--not completing a mountain of tax paperwork.

Write, email or call your Senators to tell them to vote "yes" on H.R. 4 to ensure this bill becomes a law. Visit the Contact Congress page to act now.
