The committee voted late Thursday 14-12 along party lines to forward Hatch's proposal on to the full Senate. Brady said he's confident the House bill would benefit small businesses and spark job growth, noting that the legislation allows for things like immediate expensing, which would allow business owners to write off the total cost of business expenses right away.

Carper explained that he believes the bill is unfair because the corporate tax cuts in the bill are permanent and tax cuts for middle income families are not.

Repeals the Alternative Minimum Tax so millions of individuals and families will no longer have to worry about calculating their taxes twice each year and paying the higher amount. Those profits are now not taxed until they are returned to the United States, giving companies an incentive to keep that money offshore since they would be taxed at the current corporate tax rate of 35 percent.

Job creators praised the bill for lowering corporate rates permanently and sharply, and for overhauling the worldwide tax system.

The White House has said more than $2.5 trillion in American profits are held offshore, other estimates peg the number at $2 trillion. "The time is now to simplify our outdated tax code and let Ohioans keep more of their hard-earned money". For illiquid assets, like equipment or property, the tax rate would be 5 percent. "I really feel like we're doing great work for small businesses on Main Street".

The intra-league drama has made the NFL's behind-the-scenes negotiations more interesting than the games themselves. Even so, Jones has vowed, sources say, to make Goodell's life miserable.

$2 trillion is a staggering sum in relationship to the main economic drivers of the American economy - small business - and in terms of big business it is also huge - it is nearly the market value of Apple, Microsoft and Google combined.

"It's been 31 years since the last overhaul of the tax code", Latta said. "Our plan will help make American companies more competitive so we can create more jobs and increase wages in the United States rather than sending them overseas". Many economists doubt that will be the case.

In a statement November 17, Bishop Dewane cited findings by the nonpartisan congressional Joint Committee on Taxation that show the bill's raising of taxes on the working poor beginning in 2023 while giving simultaneous tax cuts to the highest-income Americans is problematic.

The House passed the Republican tax reform bill, H.R. 1, also known as the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act", by a 227-205 vote, with numerous provisions that have met with both support and concern from the financial industry.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will deliver tax relief to families in every Congressional district across the country.
