The Tax Foundation is reporting that the House of Representatives may take up H.R. 1864, the Mobile Workforce State Income Tax Simplification Act of 2011. The CBO describes the legislation as prohibiting states from taxing the income of employees who work in the state for fewer than 31 days. The prohibition would not apply to the income of professional athletes, entertainers or public figures.
