Do You Want to be Buried in Tax Paperwork?

Unless Congress acts to fix their mistake, a paperwork tsunami will drown every business, including yours, and all of your favorite organizations, including Downsize DC.

This coming tsunami is the new requirement that every business must fill out 1099s forms for every company with which it spends more than $600. This new burden was a provision of the Obamacare bill.

Everyone hates it. Both parties CLAIM they want to repeal it, but they can’t agree about where to fit it in their tight schedule, or whether or not to “pay” for the lost revenue with spending cuts elsewhere.

Well, they SHOULD cut spending. But let’s be clear: There’s NO revenue loss to contemplate. The 1099 requirement will cut into profits. That would mean less, not more revenue for our bloated government.

Please tell Congress to stop delaying and to please repeal the 1099 requirement immediately.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

Don’t blame the other party for not getting a repeal bill passed. The new requirement will cause . . .

This means you don’t need to offset any “lost” revenue from a repeal. Just pass a clean, simple repeal bill. Pressure Congressional leaders of BOTH parties to get this done . . .

  • Introduce a repeal bill in the House
  • Pass it in the House
  • Pass it in the Senate

If this can’t be done, I won’t blame one party or the other. I will blame BOTH.
