Republicans Outline Biggest Tax-Code Overhaul In A Generation

Top White House negotiators and key GOP leaders have agreed on those targets, but apparently President Trump has not.

A corporation in the 35 percent tax bracket repatriates $1 million of income earned overseas, it would owe $350,000 in US tax.

That means no matter how Trump invests his billions - in real estate, bonds, stocks, business ventures, etc. - the income he generates would be taxed at a rate lower than what workers pay on their wages. The idea now under consideration would allow for a fourth rate at the very top, likely somewhere between the 35% in proposals and the existing top rate of 39.6%.

Republican majorities on House and Senate tax committees have been working on those details all summer, and they may introduce legislation when Congress returns after Labor Day, with a goal of enacting a new tax code by the year's end. The drive follows a series of defeats since Trump's inauguration, including their failure so far to repeal Obamacare.

As with the individual side, some of the thornier business tax issues remain unaddressed.

GOP leaders plan to unveil specifics of their targets with their colleagues on Capitol Hill this week, and the details could change as negotiations go forward.

Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a member of the Big Six, has said he'll regard the document as a guide, but his panel won't be bound by it.
