The corporate tax provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act – latest developments

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) continues to evolve. On Thursday, November 16, the House of Representatives passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1 (the “House bill”), which was originally released on November 2 and subsequently amended. On November 9, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, had the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation release its “Description of the Chairman’s Mark” (the “Senate proposal”) of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a proposal to be marked up by the Senate Finance Committee the week of November 13.

On November 16, the Senate Finance Committee voted to approve the Senate proposal, including amendments. The Senate proposal will now advance to the Senate floor for consideration by the full Senate.
