US tax reform

On November 2, 2017, House GOP leaders unveiled their much anticipated tax reform bill, disclosing for the first time specific details that build off of the nine-page framework previously released in September. On November 17, 2017, the US House of Representatives approved the bill.

On the same day, the Senate Finance Committee passed its own version of the TCJA. However, significant differences still remain between the House and Senate plans. Before Donald Trump can sign the TCJA, the US House of Representatives and the US Senate must pass a joint bill. Whether this will happen before Christmas is not certain.
