House and Senate Reach Tax Reform Compromise

On December 13, 2017, House and Senate Republicans reached a compromise on tax reform legislation, the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The compromise bill reportedly includes agreements on corporate and individual tax rates, the treatment of pass-through income, the estate tax, and itemized deductions such as those for mortgage interest and state and local taxes, among other areas. The text of the bill is expected to be released on Friday, with votes in the full House and Senate next week.


These are among the changes reportedly included in the compromise legislation… While bill language is not yet available, these agreed-to provisions are the first provisions reportedly out of the Conference Committee. The corporate tax rate would be set at 21% for tax years beginning in 2018, as opposed to the current rate of 35% and the previously proposed cut to 20%.
