Year-End Tax Planning for Contractors:
Take Advantage of These Depreciation-Related Tax Breaks
Court Halts Fair Pay Safe Workplaces, "Blacklisting," Executive Order Implementation
|Smith & Howard; Published September 2016
With a few months left to go in 2016, it’s a good time for contractors to consider their tax situations for the year and to take steps that may help reduce their prospective tax liability. Notably, the passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 extended or made permanent a number of breaks with the potential to provide significant savings.
| AGC of America; Published October 25, 2016
On October 24, the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas granted a request for preliminary injunction against parts of the Obama Administration's implementation of the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces, or "Blacklisting" as it is known, Executive Order. As a result direct federal contractors will not—at this time—be required to report labor law violations with their bids on federal contract solicitations and awards.
AGC Georgia Receives National PR Award
Thanks to our members, we have received an AGC of America Chapter Public Relations Award for our Workforce Development Campaign. Each year, AGC recognizes excellent Chapter public relations achievements during the calendar year. You, our members, made this award possible thanks to your efforts in and out of the classroom.
To help us frame our message and explain our long term goals, we coined the phrase One School, One Instructor, One Student, You which has helped us link fragmented efforts by various groups, including teachers, members, and AGC Georgia staff, into a more strategic, coordinated and cohesive initiative.
