Today’s release includes items not included in the prior version of the tax package:
It is not clear whether the House will take up H.R. 88 before the current Congress adjourns later this month or, if it does, what the Senate’s official response (if any) might be. Regardless of whether the House passes H.R. 88 or not, it is possible that some provisions in the bill might be included in other legislation on which the House and Senate might agree (such as a government funding bill) prior to adjournment. However, it is also possible that this will not be the case, and that no further tax legislation will be enacted by the current Congress.
