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!

4 Great Examples of Telework’s Impact

by: Brie Weiler Reynolds

As champions of telecommuting and flexible work options for all, we certainly don’t have to tell TelCoa readers about the benefits of telework--we all know and love them.

Gas Prices Drive More Innovation

 

TelCoa’s research has revealed the ‘average commuting motorist’ spends 17% of his/her take home pay getting to and from their centralized place of employment.  But that was before the price of gasoline approached $4 per gallon.  Many throughout the nation are re-discovering the ‘cost avoidance’ of telework or working from their homes as more and more motorists are trying to think of ways to spend less time behind the wheel.

One significant way to reduce fuel consumption is to reduce the number of trips we make to and from work.

We welcome your thoughts and comments on this.
