Tax Bill Released
Yesterday, House GOP leaders released their long-awaited tax reform legislation, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. You may find a section-by-section summary prepared by House Ways & Means Committee staff here, as well as a summary of small business highlights prepared by MSGI here. A mark up for the bill is scheduled in the Ways & Means Committee on Monday and it is likely there will be changes made to it before then, as at least four Republicans have already said they will not vote for the measure as is.
