Manufacturers Commend House Vote to Remove Costly Burden

Press release date: March 3, 2011

Repeal of 1099 Reporting Requirement Helps Small Manufacturers WASHINGTON, D.C., - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued a statement following the House of Representatives' vote approving H.R. 4, the Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act: "The 1099 reporting requirements included in the health care bill were costly and unreasonable, and we are pleased the House lifted this burden on job creators. While the NAM supports efforts to ensure tax compliance, we do not think it should come at the expense of manufacturers who are following the law. The Section 1099 reporting requirements would do just that, and the House was right in voting for common sense."
