We live and work in an interconnected, mobile economy. The modern workforce isn’t stationary—many people travel all over the country to do their jobs. Right now, employees who travel outside of their states of residence for business purposes are subject to onerous administrative burdens because, in addition to filing federal and resident state income tax returns, they may also be legally required to file an income tax return in every other state where they traveled, even if they were there for only one day. These employees and their employers are forced to comply with a patchwork of confusing, outdated, and sometimes predatory nonresident state income tax laws. 

The Mobile Workforce Coalition works to enact legislation protecting traveling workers from predatory state nonresident income tax laws. For information about the Coalition, please contact the Coalition’s Executive Director, Maureen Riehl, at mriehl@multistate.us.
