3 % Withholding Tax on Federal, State & Local Construction Projects

In November 2011 AGC of Kansas working in partnership with AGC of America chapters worked to lobby Congress in passing HR 674 that repealed the 3% Withholding Tax legislation. This legislation would have required contractors performing work over $ 10,000 on federal, state or local funded projects to have 3 % withholding of the contract withheld and placed into an IRS controlled account.

AGC of Kansas would like to thank its membership for contacting our Kansas Congressional Delegation for successfully lobbying each of the delegation members to vote to repeal this legislation.
