Comparing the House and Senate Tax Reform Proposals in Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

On November 9, 2017, the House Ways and Means Committee voted on the final amendments to its tax reform bill, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1). On the same day, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) released a summary of the Senate GOP's version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  On November 15, 2017, the Senate Committee on Finance released a list of proposed changes to the original Senate Tax Reform Proposal. The tweaks by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, largely move to make the bill comply with Senate budget rules.  One change of note is the insertion of a provision to eliminate the Affordable Care Act individual shared responsibility payment (personal insurance mandate) for post-December 31, 2018.
The House and Senate versions of the bill have several similar provisions, but there are some significant differences. Both versions would move the United States from a worldwide tax regime to a territorial system, reduce corporate income tax rates, eliminate the corporate and individual alternative minimum taxes, increase the standard deduction, and expand child tax credits. Differences include the rules relating to the mortgage interest deduction, IRC Section 179 deduction, and the Estate Tax.

Sometimes, there's nothing more awkward than walking into a room for a business event where you don't know anyone. The last thing you want to do is introduce yourself and begin a conversation. Guess what? You're not the only person feeling that way in the room. Others are just waiting for someone like you to come up to them, so they can talk to you. So, don't be afraid to take the initiative, and you may meet a potential customer for your business.   

Imagine being able to assist local charities by doing something as simple as offering your employees access to beverages in your facility. Coca-Cola, in partnership with CCSNJ, offers members access to the Vend4Cause program. Vending machines and/or coolers supported by Coca-Cola can be placed in your business and a portion of every dollar spent is given to a charity of your choice. For more information click here.
