Once again, tax legislation is front and center in Washington. In August, Congress passed and the President signed into law the “Inflation Reduction Act,” which contained a number of important and complex tax changes affecting corporations and individuals, including a new 15% minimum tax on book income, a particularly important development given its similarity in name, but not operation, with separate work at the OECD to create a global minimum tax (Pillar Two) and to address the increasing digitization of the economy (Pillar One). In addition, many other tax policy proposals, like the new Section 174 R&D rules, may be addressed in a post-election Lame Duck session later this year. This page is designed to help you keep abreast of legislation and understand its impact through insights from trusted Deloitte tax specialists.
