The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) applauds action taken on Wednesday, February 27 by Reps. Ami Bera (D-CA), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Kenny Marchant (R-TX), and Jackie Walorski (R-IN) to introduce the Health Insurance Tax Relief Act (H.R. 1398, S. 172), which would delay the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) through 2021 and help lower health insurance premiums for small businesses.
“The HIT disproportionately hurts small businesses who want to invest in the health and well-being of their employees,” said Jonathan Paine, President and CEO of NLBMDA. “NLBMDA is working on behalf of lumber dealers to help lower the cost of employer-sponsored health insurance.”
