Lawmakers released the text for the $1.7 trillion fiscal year 2023 omnibus appropriations bill.

The package contains 12 separate appropriations bills providing a total of $772.5 billion in nondefense spending—a $42.5 billion increase in topline funding. House and Senate lawmakers are expected to begin procedural votes on the bill as early as today. Final passage is expected before the Dec. 23 deadline to avoid a government shutdown.

Though lawmakers on both sides of the aisle had expressed support for a broad range of tax objectives, a deal could not be reached on any of these items. These failed objectives include extensions to expiring Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) business credits, as well as an expansion of the current Child Tax Credit (CTC). This tax extenders effort reportedly failed earlier this week after House Ways and Means Chair Richard Neal (D-MA) rejected an offer from Ranking Member Kevin Brady (R-TX) that would have extended several TCJA provisions in exchange for an expansion to the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC). Additional tax measures were left out, including the extension of the following pandemic-related proposals: (1) an elective deferral of last in, first out (LIFO) accounting provisions, (2) deferral of cancellation of debt income and (3) deferral of built-in gains income.

The need for fact-based reporting of issues important to multi generational businesses and protecting a lifetime of savings has never been greater. Now more than ever, multi generational businesses and family businesses are under fire. That’s why Policy and Taxation Group is passionately working to increase the awareness of issues important to generationally-owned family businesses built on hard work, while continuing to strengthen our presence on Capitol Hill.  Those issues include Step Up in Basis, gift tax, Valuation Discounts, Capital Gains Tax, Income Tax Rates, Wealth Tax, & Estate Tax (death tax).

Policy and Taxation Group is the leading information, education and advocacy organization working for the reduction and ultimate elimination of estate tax, gift tax, and generation skipping transfer taxes, and other taxes that punish hard work and success. Our Mission is to challenge hostile tax policies that meaningfully and measurably impact families and limit the ability of family businesses to remain family owned. We work with Congress in Washington DC against high Income Tax Rates, possible elimination of Valuation Discounts, increase in Capital Gains Tax, enactment of a Wealth Tax, and the continued burden of the Estate Tax (death tax), and the possible elimination of Step up in Basis.
