Tax policy update: Insights and observations as Congress enters summer recess


RECORDED WEBCAST | August 11, 2021

Authored by RSM US LLP

Event overview

The House has entered its traditional summer recess and the Senate is working to do the same, but tax policy developments will continue to evolve. Take advantage of this brief downtime to evaluate how the proposed changes might affect your business.

On August 11 our tax policy and Washington National Tax teams—consisting of veteran tax professionals, many with IRS and Treasury backgrounds—reviewed where things stand in Congress, based on their Capitol Hill discussions, examine the tax agenda for September and beyond, and identify milestones that mark the path to significant policy changes.

Watch the recorded webcast where we discussed important topics such as proposed rate increases, retroactivity, IRS enforcement initiatives and more.
