The House of Representatives passed the log awaited “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” on November 16, 2017. The Senate is currently debating the version of the bill reported out of the Senate Committee on Finance on November 16, 2017. Assuming passage in the Senate, a Conference Committee will meet to resolve differences between the two bills, which the legislators hope to finalize before December 25, 2017.

Both bills significantly amend the Internal Revenue Code, particularly with respect to the taxation of business income.  While it is not possible at the moment to predict the precise substance of the ultimate outcome, the parameters of the changes to both individual and business taxation are known. Businesses and individuals need to start preparing today for these potential changes.

Join Tom Garigliano, Practice Group Leader of BPM’s Tax Practice and Hank Gutman, former Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff, on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 as we discuss the procedural and substantive state of play of the legislative effort at that date.
