However, budgeting work, not many may not proceed to the original process Street, the budget resolution in the current 10 fiscal year from the budgeting process By now, the 1976 fiscal year up to 2005 passed . For this reason, the budget resolution is not required for the spending bill formulated. However, in order to achieve only the ruling Republican Party has a majority of the tax reform that Trump President aim in both houses, it is effective to take advantage of the mechanism of fiscal adjustment measures , fiscal adjustment instruction it has been a need to pass a budget resolution that incorporates the . In the deliberation of the 2006 budget resolution, the Senate of the budget to 1.5 Senate budget resolution that incorporates the fiscal adjustment instruction that allows the trillion dollars of tax cuts are passed on October 19, the House of Representatives also October 26 in the next 10 years It was passed in the form to accept the resolution.

Also, in addition to doubling the basic exemption amount from the current 12,700 dollars in two-income households to $ 24,000, the abolition of the estate tax and generation skipping transfer tax was included . On the other hand, the mortgage interest deduction for the tax credit, donation deduction, it is expected to be abolished, except for the part, such as child tax credit. This is a mechanism that can be deducted state and local tax payment amount from the federal income tax is also included. Marunage However, in a unified framework and income levels that apply to the division income tax rate, such as such as obsolete as tax credits is not specifically shown, to be included in a detailed system design brew likely part of the controversial parliament It has become a has been dressed. Currently, system design and bill development work of the tax reform is being carried out in the center of the Republican House of Representatives, already is large tax cuts to the wealthy, established have been reported in the abolition or part of the state and local tax deduction contribution pension plan and out criticism against such cuts observation of the deduction for the , system design seems to have difficulties. ◆ cut corporate income tax and, the highest tax rate on partnership In the corporate tax reform, in addition to the highest tax rate for the pass-through entities, such as corporate income tax and partnerships is pulled down, such as the alternative minimum tax that had to be calculated in a different way normal tax calculation will be abolished, the tax system simplified policy, such as has been shown .

On the other hand, including the tax incentives that have been applied so far to certain conditions are met domestic manufacturing industry , etc. Other deductions is expected to be abolished. However, system design in corporation tax reform seems to have difficulties. The highest tax rate for the pass-through entity, which brew be pulled lower than the personal income tax rate 25% of the controversy from the income tax rate and the same level of the past. It’s in the center of the wealthy, in order to avoid high personal income tax rate, because the tax fled to ensure that established a such partnership tax rate of pass-through entities are applied are expected to occur. For this reason, it seems to have been discussed what to do with the conditions of the entities tax rate of pass-through entities are applied.

Although the detailed system design remains opaque part because that is not is, the US think tank of tax Policy Center is a unified framework and last year estimated on the basis of the tax reform proposals 8 which has been announced by the Republican House of Representatives as a result, when compared before and after tax reform the post-tax income 2015, while the total the increase of + 1.7%, by income group in income upper 20% of the increase rate + 3.0% and it has been shown to significantly greater than the other layers .

This playing cards President “tax reform not benefit the wealthy, there is a benefit to the middle class” is a result that is inconsistent with the description of the. On the other hand, according to the Pew Research Center, in the opinion polls for the federal tax system of the Americans, but by the support to political parties divergence is, the strong dissatisfaction with respect to that part of the companies and the wealthy is not a fair share of the burden such reply indicating exceeds 60%, high it can be seen .

Therefore, Rep tax effect tax reform when the view that focus on large enterprises and wealthy stronger is located the support is is difficult to obtain potential for tax reform, in which case, to be elected next year’s elections it will is faced with difficult choices. ———- A BETTER WAY own taxes resulting from participation REFORM Https://Abetterway.Speaker.Gov/?Page=tax-reform ———- Future prospect By FY 2006 budget resolution has been passed, Congress Republican Fumidase one step towards tax reform. However, the future of tax reform discussion that aims to bill the establishment of the rest of the year twists and turns are expected. Although the Congress accepted the expansion of fiscal deficits of $ 1.5 trillion, the estimates of private think tank, revenue decline due to the tax reform has been shown prospect of a $ 2 trillion more than, may not fit in the $ 1.5 trillion high . In addition, the abolition of the state and local tax credits that are currently controversial is viewed from that revenue effect is very large and 1.3 trillion to 1.6 trillion dollars, if these deductions is reduced, and the drop in revenue is further increased It is. Without decreasing the revenue, it would be difficult to carry out the interest adjustment related to the handling of such deduction. On the other hand, the opposition Democratic is clearly shown opposite orientation relative benefit is greater tax reform tax wealthy in the form of increasing the future liability, at present bipartisan agreement has become difficult. In addition, the Republican Congress through the budget resolution also not be said to be monolithic. Among Republicans, still many members of idea that should be a tax reform in a way that does not reduce the overall revenue. In fact, although the vote of the House budget resolution passed at 4 votes difference opposite 212 relative to favor 216, 20 Republicans is revealed that opposed. In addition, even in only the Senate is higher than just two people the majority, such as Bob Coker lawmakers express their opposition to tax reform with increased debt, since a plurality of members indicates a skeptical attitude to the tax reform proposals , it has raised the voice of concern or can secure a majority in the Senate. In the real deliberation number of days of the year are limited including the processing of the provisional budget as described above, the possibility of policy coordination, including the Republicans in and the opposition Democratic Party would be low. Realization of the tax reform is expected to be in since the beginning of the earliest in the next year, but the reduction of the tax reduction scale in order to obtain the support of a majority of the parliament Republicans would be inevitable. data of the journal described are those which were obtained and processed from a variety of sources of information, it does not guarantee its accuracy and safety.
