Senate Returns to Consider 1099 Repeal Bill - PPA Today

Senate Returns to Consider 1099 Repeal Bill

PPA remains hopeful that the U.S. Senate will complete the passage of their version of H.R. 5297 - The Small Business Jobs Act of 2010. Prior to the August recess, PPA sent letters to the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee leadership, supporting the substitution they introduced in the Senate.  

"We were pleased to see the passage of the bill substitute prior to the recess," adds David Trust, CEO of PPA.  "It is especially important to take note that the Senate's substitute included Section 2042, a provision allowing self-employed business owners to deduct their health care expenses pre-tax for one year, as proposed by Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME)."

Before the bill can be sent back to the U.S. House of Representatives for a conforming vote, though, there are still amendments on the table.  To learn about these amendments and more, read the full article
