NCC Joins in Advocating for Tax Relief for Essential Front Line Workers
April 13, 2020
As work begins on the next coronavirus response package, NCC joined more than two dozen associations representing the food industry in urging the administration to include tax relief for America’s essential critical industry workers.
“Essential critical infrastructure workers are fighting a war against the coronavirus at great personal cost, and we ask that these workers under the Department of Homeland Security definition of critical infrastructure be recognized and supported by the federal government,” the letter read. “We are recommending tax relief for these key essential critical infrastructure workers from federal income taxes and payroll taxes up to $50,000 to demonstrate that all of us stand by these workers as they nobly and courageously serve as the nation’s lifeline during this difficult time.”
