Worldwide ERC sent the following request to its members on November 15, 2017 asking for support in preserving the moving expense deduction.
Dear Worldwide ERC® Members,
Your industry needs your help. Please write your members of Congress today in support of preserving the moving expense deduction. As previously reported by Worldwide ERC®, the current Senate and House versions of the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” would eliminate numerous tax deductions and exclusions including the moving expense deduction. It is critical that your members of Congress hear from you, requesting that they help restore this tool vital to workforce mobility.
