Changing Tax Legislation in the Biden Budget

Online Event


Eide Bailly webinarInspired Perspectives | Changing Tax Legislation in the Biden Budget

While new credits, changes in international taxation, and possible tax increases have long been rumored to be part of the Biden administration’s legislative goals, specific details have been lacking.

In late May, the president’s budget is scheduled to be released. At that time the “Treasury Green Book,” a detailed description of the tax proposals included in the budget, is also expected.

Issues including proposed effective dates, cut-off and phase-in amounts for rate increases and the application of the proposals in more complicated situations are expected to be addressed.

Eide Bailly’s tax legislation team, along with National Tax office specialists, will examine this new information, explore the potential impact it could have on individuals and businesses, and discuss how it may influence future legislation.

Learning Objectives:
Review President Biden’s tax proposals in light of the additional details in the “Treasury Green Book.”
Identify potential impacts on individuals and businesses.
Outline what comes next.
Discuss how to prepare for potential changes.
