Stop The HIT Statement on Proposed HIT Tax Suspension

As details emerge regarding a potential delay of several ACA taxes, Stop The HIT’s Executive Director Elena Tompkins released the following statement:

“While we welcome the suspension of the health insurance tax (HIT) in 2019, small businesses need help now. It’s critical that policymakers provide urgent relief and much-needed certainty by suspending the tax immediately for 2018 and 2019. Millions of small businesses — as well as seniors, middle-class families, and consumers — would benefit from a tax rebate this year as a result of HIT suspension. This important step would build on previous bipartisan legislation providing HIT relief and continued support for America’s small businesses and economic growth.”
