“This year, I’ve joined my colleagues in the House in writing and passing legislation to empower small business owners by repealing unnecessary government regulations, fixing the tax code to help job creators, encouraging entrepreneurship and growth, and paying down America’s unsustainable debt burden,” Rep. Walden said.
For example, Rep. Walden strongly supported the successful repeal of the burdensome “1099 requirement” that would have required businesses to complete 1099 tax forms for most business-to-business transactions above $600 in a calendar year.
He also voted in the House to empower small business owners and ensure that federal agencies are not implementing duplicative or unachievable burdens on small businesses, such as the Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act (H.R. 872), the Energy Tax Prevention Act (H.R. 910), and the EPA Regulatory Relief Act (Boiler MACT, H.R. 2250).
