Multi-State Worker Tax Fairness Act Reintroduced in Congress

The Multi-State Worker Tax Fairness Act has been reintroduced in the U.S. Congress. This proposed federal legislation would prevent the double taxation of interstate telecommuters by requiring states to use the physical presence test for taxation.

Under the physical presence test, in order for a state to tax a worker’s income, the physical presence of the worker is required. The work must be performed in that state. All other states may not tax that income a second time. Any form of the “convenience of the employer” test would be prohibited.
