Richmond, VA - Today the House of Delegates passed House Bill 1336 with a vote of 59-38. HB 1336 was introduced by Delegate David Ramadan (R-87) and Delegate Comstock (R-34) was a chief co-patron of the measure. The bill is both a family-friendly work policy as well as a transportation congestion solution.
Delegate Comstock released the following statement:
"I'm grateful for the support our Telework Tax Credit Bill received today and I look forward to the Senate passing this bill. Individuals will be able to use this tax credit for technological upgrades in their own home."
"Telework is a win win solution for Northern Virginia workers and drivers. I look forward to continuing to promote the growth of Telework as an option for small businesses, corporations and government alike."
"Over the past two years I have passed Telework legislation that provided a tax credit to businesses to promote telework. This legislation is a compliment to those efforts and now the employees will also be able to receive a modest tax credit to help them set up a situation to work from home."
The tax credit of $250 per teleworker can be used by employees who telework for a minimum of 20 hours per week during at least 45 weeks of the taxable year.
