Urge Your Members of Congress to Repeal Three Percent Withholding
May 3, 2009
Your Voice Could Make a Difference
In 2012 a new law will require federal, state, and local governments to withhold three percent from all payments for goods and services as a guard against possible business tax evasion. Withholding applies to the total contract, not to the net revenue generated from a project, and will affect specialty contractors immensely. Contact your U.S. Representative and Senators today and strongly urge them to pass a full permanent repeal of the three percent withholding tax. Click here for more information and to quickly and easily send a letter to your elected leaders regarding this important issue.
