National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses (NACCB) plenary session : impact of Section 1706

Catalog Number





In a plenary session, all of the participants discussed how Section 1706 triggered the formation of NACCB, how the law came to be passed and what impact it had on the various broker businesses. The participants explained the IRS rules for independent contractors and how the Safe Harbor provision avoided any concern for these rules by the broker firms prior to Section 1706 becoming the law in 1986. The NACCB came into existence as an owner driven organization after the advent of Section 1706. It continued to operate with little paid staff for a number of years, but broadened its activities into other areas to support its members.
