The article reports that Commuter Tax Appeal group of district residents of District of Columbia, a nonprofit group filed an appeal last week in an effort to reverse a federal ban that prevents the city from imposing a tax on individuals who work in the city but reside outside it. The appeal, filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, is of a decision earlier this year rendered by U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle. The judge agreed with litigants who claimed that the prohibition was unfair, but ruled that Congress acted constitutionally when it enacted the U.S. Government Accountability Office released a study last year that stated that the district has a permanent "structural imbalance" beyond its control of up to $1.1 billion each year that represents the difference between the cost of providing services to the public and the federal city's ability to raise revenue.
