Contact Congress Today: Support Disinfectant Services Tax Credit
Congress has indicated they will focus on their next COVID-19 Relief package in July, so NPMA has created a month-long campaign to spotlight COVID-19 bills our industry cares about. Each week we will be asking you to participate in a voter voice on a specific bill to raise awareness on Capitol Hill. NPMA will also be tweeting and sending a letter from Dominque Stumpf, NPMA’s CEO, to Congress outlining our concerns.
This week’s campaign focuses on H.R. 7079, The Clean Start: Back to Work Tax Credit Act.
H.R. 7079 would create a tax credit per business entity to help defray the unforeseen and increased cleaning costs associated with fighting the coronavirus. The credit would be temporary, capped, and used to help offset the costs of cleaning services, cleaning products and sanitary-related equipment. Qualified cleaning expenses also would include personal protective equipment, which is critical to protecting employees and the public. This bill would assist businesses that want to reopen safely and allow disinfectant services to remain financially feasible for struggling businesses.
