1099 repeal vote a victory for restaurant operators

A bill to repeal the 1099 paperwork mandate in the health care reform law awaits President Obama’s signature.

The Senate voted 87 to 12 April 5 to approve the Comprehensive 1099 Taxpayer Protection and Repayment of Exchange Subsidy Overpayments Act of 2011. The bill was sponsored by Sens. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.V.). 
The legislation repeals the expanded 1099 reporting requirement in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The overly burdensome requirement would have made nearly every business-to-business transaction reportable to the Internal Revenue Service.

“Today’s vote is a victory for thousands of restaurant operators and small business owners who don’t have large administrative staffs to handle recordkeeping and reporting responsibilities,” said Scott DeFife, the NRA’s executive vice president of policy and government affairs. “This action will help the industry continue to devote resources into job creation rather than the burdensome 1099 requirement that was enacted last year.”

The National Restaurant Association aggressively worked to repeal the 1099 provision. It sent letters to the Senate with the backing of 49 state restaurant associations and provided testimony from restaurant operators about the overwhelming challenges of the provision. It also rallied grassroots action to urge Congress to overturn the requirement.

The House of Representatives voted March 3 to repeal the mandate.
