Thursday April 28, 2022 – Last March, right around the time Congress enacted the American Rescue Plan Act with its hidden Cash App provisions, the United States House of Representatives passed the Protect the Right To Organize Act (PRO Act) on a 225 -206 vote.
The Pro Act purportedly “strengthen workers’ rights to strike for better wages and working conditions, strengthen safeguards to ensure that workers can hold fair union elections and allow the National Labor Relations Board to fine bosses who violate workers’ rights.”
What was not advertised is the PRO Act’s impact on the tax obligations 1099 “Gig” workers. A recent study by Americans for Tax Reform, the Tholos Foundation and Beacon Hill Institute, they report that the PRO Act is a massive tax hike on millions of Americans.
Attorney Steven A. Leahy examines this study and the PRO Act.
