Funding new infrastructure

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act ("the Act") calls for $550 billion in new spending with revenue offsets that include new cryptocurrency information reporting requirements and reinstating a Superfund tax on chemicals.

Among those offsets, the Act forsees $30 billion from strengthening tax reporting requirements and enforcement for cryptocurrency and $14 billion from reimposing Superfund excise tax on chemicals.

Other offsets include redirecting unspent pandemic emergency relief funds, various user fees, Medicare savings, an extension of interest rate smoothing options for defined benefit plans and projected revenue gains generated from the expected economic growth effects of infrastructure improvements.

The message for business

Corporations and individuals should assess the potential effects of increased federal support for US infrastructure while also continuing to communicate with policy makers on the potential effects of President Biden’s tax increase proposals on their employees, job creation and investments in the United States.
