Tax extenders bill becomes law: President Obama signed legislation that retroactively extends for one year the bulk of the temporary tax deductions, credits, and incentives that expired at the end of 2013.

Hatch lays out principles for tax reform; Treasury official hints at possible White House plan: Just days after releasing a report on tax reform, Senate Finance Committee ranking member Orrin Hatch offered seven principles he thinks should guide the process; meanwhile, a Treasury official said the Obama administration may release a detailed business tax reform plan if doing so would help reform efforts on the Hill.

Finance Committee membership rosters for 114th Congress complete: Senate Finance Committee ranking Republican Orrin Hatch announced that GOP Sens. Dan Coats of Indiana, Dean Heller of Nevada, and Tim Scott of South Carolina will join the taxwriting panel when the 114th Congress convenes next month; Democratic leaders, meanwhile, announced that Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia will retain his spot on the panel even though their party will be in the minority next year.

A note on our publication schedule: Barring unexpected developments in tax policy before the start of 2015, this will be the last edition of Tax News & Views for this year.
