Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Applaud New GIG Act to be Considered in Tax Bill Markup

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement on the New GIG Act that is under consideration to be added to the House tax reform legislation:

“Tax laws not only need to be reformed but they need to be updated to reflect today’s economy.  More and more people are working multiple jobs as contractors because it fits their schedule, lifestyle and financial needs. They can spend their mornings doing graphics or web site design while driving for Uber or Lyft the rest of the day, and perhaps even do a third job in the evening. The reform proposed by Senator Thune and Congressman Rice would simplify the tax code for Gig Economy companies and their independent contractors, and therefore incentivize more people to participate and succeed in these new jobs.  There’s no cost to taxpayers and it’s true reform.”
