If you have been following my blogs these past few months, you are learning that there are many good reasons the remote tax workforce is growing. Corporations now hire many remote tax experts as consultants; tax and accounting services firms have been outsourcing remote tax consultants for years; law firms are more accepting of research being conducted by lawyers who prefer to work part-time from home; and governments are now studying a remote government tax workforce and implementing test programs. All of these organizations have something in common; they are saving money on rental office space, and many are even saving on computer and phone equipment. Remote workers also reduce the amount of traffic on the road during heavy commute time. Given that some states are now planning to tax those on the road during heavy traffic hours, it is obvious the remote tax work force will continue to grow.
