The Status Quo’s Expiration Date

The Senate Finance Committee reported out a bill extending virtually all of the so-called “extenders,” some of which involve state and local bonds, such as an allocation of $400 million for both 2014 and 2015 for QZABs. (See related article in the full story here.)  Most of these provisions expired at the end of last year. Congress has often let thes provisions lapse for a variety of reasons before extending them.  The main reason no effort was made to extend them last year was because the leadership of the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee wanted to deal with these provisions as part of tax reform.  Acting on them separately from overall tax reform was seen as an admission that tax reform was dead.  Now instead the action on these provisions is being spoken of as the first step in tax reform.  Click here to continue reading...
