Repeal of contractor tax withholding is sign of economic times
Friday - 10/28/2011, 7:06pm EDT
The repeal is a sign of the economic times, said Scott Amey, general counsel and contracting specialist at the Project for Government Oversight, in an interview with In Depth with Francis Rose.
The five-year-old law was set to take effect in 2012. However, a repeal received overwhelming support as a way to let companies keep money that could help create jobs.
The government, however, must still figure out how to go after contractors who still haven't paid their taxes. A Government Accountability Office report released this summer found contractors who received Recovery Act funds owed $757 million in back taxes.
"The government still has a problem here it needs to struggle with," Amey said.
