Bipartisan House Bill Introduced to Provide Tax Relief to Food Supply Chain Workers


On Tuesday, Reps. Glenn “GT” Thompson (R-PA) and Dwight Evans (D-PA) introduced a bill titled the “Assistance and Gratitude for Coronavirus Heroes in Agribusiness who are Invaluable to the Nation Act” (AG CHAIN Act). The legislation would provide a federal tax holiday and payroll tax exemption for essential employees in the food and agriculture industries who are working during the COVID-19 health pandemic, including convenience store workers. Certain workers, which will be determined by Department of Homeland Security guidelines, who earn less than $75,000 annually, would be exempt from paying federal taxes on income earned between February 15 and June 15 of this year. 

The AG CHAIN Act would extend the “Giving Retailers and Our Convenience Employees Relief Act (GROCER Act) that recently proposed an identical federal tax holiday for grocery and convenience store employees. Both bills would provide the Department of Treasury the ability to extend the benefit for three months.
