House Introduces Bill to Prevent Contracting With Companies That Have Seriously Delinquent Federal Tax Debts

On February 28, 2013, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) introduced the “Contracting and Tax Accountability Act of 2013” (H.R. 882). This bill would prevent the government from awarding a contract above the simplified acquisition threshold to any contractor unless the contractor has certified in writing that it has no serious delinquent tax debts. The bill was referred to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
