Tax Tip Tuesday: Additional Tax Reform Legislation
July 31, 2018
This week we will be looking at some things currently being discussed by Congress.
Republican lawmakers are considering a second round of tax reform legislation as a follow-up to last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). As of this writing, there’s been no actual bill drafted.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released a broad outline of what the tax package may contain. One of the main themes of the proposed legislation is to make permanent certain provisions in the TCJA, which are currently scheduled to expire at the end of 2025, including:
federal income tax rate cuts for individual taxpayers
the doubled child tax credit
the deduction for up to 20% of qualified business income from pass-through entities
We will be watching to see if any of this passes this year.
Also, we will be taking a break next week and will return with a new edition of Tax Tip Tuesday on August 14th.
