ABC is here to help and provide support in any way as we navigate this crisis together. Please find ABC coronavirus resources for members as well as chapters operations:
ABC’s inaugural Tech Alliance was built to help drive ABC members’ ability to develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work through improved utilization of technology. The alliance is a hand-selected group of 13 construction technology companies that add inherent value for ABC members and position ABC as a leading association for construction technology needs. Led by Matthew Abeles, ABC vice president of construction technology and innovation, the alliance companies will be integrated in our association’s long-term planning. They will collaborate on technology resources for the association, including a beta testing/free technology program and educational webinars focused on our mid-size contractors, and provide chapters with access to companies supporting our contractor members.

On Nov. 9, the U.S. Treasury issued a proposed regulation on state and local income taxes imposed on and paid by a partnership or S corporation on its income. The rule would allow states to permit individually and family-owned business to continue to deduct state and local taxes, just like larger corporations can. This would be an important win for smaller businesses and a significant incentive for more states to provide this critical tax relief.
