Highlights and Surprises in $3.5 Trillion Budget Reconciliation Bill
On September 13, the House Ways and Means Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation released drafts of proposed tax legislation and estimated budget effects of taxes under the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill. Many of the provisions in the draft legislation are familiar from President Biden’s American Families Plan and American Jobs Plan and Treasury’s Green Book released earlier this year.
In this session, Cherry Bekaert’s Tax Beat hosts, Brooks and Sarah, walk through highlights of the draft legislation including proposed tax rate changes and the taxpayers who may be impacted. They also discuss surprises in the draft bill that were not mentioned in the earlier proposals from President Biden, and the effective dates for various provisions. To close out the discussion, Brian Dill, partner and leader of the Firm’s International Tax Practice Team, joins in for a discussion of the proposed legislative changes to FDII, GILTI, foreign tax credits and other tax provisions impacting companies operating within and outside of the U.S.
