Lawmakers rally to save Washington, D.C.’s tip credit

A majority of the city’s ruling council have co-sponsored a bill that would reverse last month’s ballot measure.

Pressure from the coffee company, Amazon and others killed the tax, which would have funded anti-homelessness initiatives.

The coffee giant accuses the city of flawed financial decision-making.

Restaurateurs would be forced to pick up the whole fee on tips charged on credit cards.

The state Department of Revenue is conducting more than 1,000 audits comparing cash tips reported by restaurants to tips tracked through credit cards; so far restaurants have been fined more than $40,000.

Larger employers are moving out, while some small businesses like restaurants are deciding now’s the time to throw in the napkin.

Recent updates to the Affordable Care Act brought relief. The employer mandate was delayed until 2016 for companies with 50 to 99 employees.

Restaurants that serve the city as a contractor or subcontractor will be required to pay at least $13 an hour under an executive order from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Pitched resistance from the state’s business community failed to halt the proposal.
