President’s Corner
TelCoa thanks U.S. Representatives Jim Himes, Rosa DeLauro, and Elizabeth Esty for introducing the Multi-State Worker Tax Fairness Act, H.R. 4085, 113th Congress. We strongly support this crucial legislation. The bill would finally eliminate the telecommuter tax, a steep penalty often resulting in double taxation of income that interstate telecommuters earn at home. The telecommuter tax unfairly burdens telecommuters and their employers and limits telework adoption. Congress must make the Multi-State Worker Tax Fairness Act law! TelCoa and other advocates are working to secure the bill’s enactment, but we need your help! >>> Read More...

Scott McNealy to Unveil Plan that Saves California Billions in Operating Costs

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2011

McNealy from Sun Microsystems will deliver a Keynote speech at the Work Anywhere Symposium on September 22, 2011 in Sacramento.  He will unveil new research results about a new business model for telework and the proven savings realized.  State and local governments need to know telework is not an all or nothing proposition, the dirty little secret is if State workers work at home just 2 days per week the state would keep almost $1.5 billion in its wallet each year, $170 million of that in real estate costs alone. According to Telework Research Network’s study, California could save a whopping $800 million in increased productivity and $500 million in absenteeism and turnover costs.
