What you need to know about tax reform

Finance Committee approves tax reform bill 

The Senate Finance Committee on November 16 approved by a vote of 14 to 12 a Senate version of tax reform legislation. The Finance Committee action comes after the House of Representatives on November 16 voted 227 to 205 to pass the ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’ (HR 1). The tax reform proposals approved by the Finance Committee differ in key aspects from the House-passed bill.  

The  Senate is expected to consider floor amendments to the Finance Committee-approved tax reform bill during the week of November 27, following Congress’s Thanksgiving holiday recess week. Once the Senate has approved its tax reform bill, the two chambers must reconcile differences between the two bills and then vote to pass a final bill in identical form before tax reform legislation can be signed into law by President Trump.
