White House: Tax Reform Could Be A Mix of Permanent and Temporary Measures
By Joseph Lawler, Washington Examiner
Tax reform could be a mix of permanent and temporary provisions, according to a White House official.
One of the major questions facing congressional Republicans and administration officials negotiating tax legislation is whether the bill should take the form of a comprehensive, permanent reform of the tax code, or a temporary tax cut. The second option would be easier, given the procedural constraints facing Republicans in the Senate.
But a member of Trump's administration said the bill could be include both permanent reforms and provisions that come with an expiration date, according to an article published by Tax Analysts, a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy group.
The White House official, who was not named, said administration and congressional staffers are meeting for about two hours daily to discuss the legislative effort.
