house Bill H.R. 88

Extending Expiring Tax Code Provisions, Modernizing the IRS, and Providing Tax Relief for Disaster Victims

Argument in favor

This bill extends provisions of the tax code that would cause economic hardship to many Americans if they were to expire, while modernizing the customer service experience at the IRS to improve taxpayers’ experience. It also expands retirement opportunities, helps start-ups, and makes needed technical corrections to the tax code.

Why does Washington not figure out how to live with in their means rather than how to tax anything and everything?

👍🏻 H.R. 88 - Modernization of the 🇺🇸 IRS 👍🏻 I’m in support of this House bill (H.R. 88) which has been amended to extend expiring tax code provisions to prevent tax hikes, expand retirement savings opportunities, modernize the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) IT services to improve taxpayers’ experience, provide tax relief to individuals affected by disasters, and make technical corrections to the tax code. In its original form, the bill adjusted the boundary of the Shiloh National Military Park and designated the Parker’s Crossroads Battlefield, but those provisions have been removed. This bill extends provisions of the tax code that would cause economic hardship to many Americans if they were to expire, while modernizing the customer service experience at the IRS to improve taxpayers’ experience.

From Congress.gov: This bill modifies the boundary of Shiloh National Military Park to include the Fallen Timbers Battlefield, the Russell House Battlefield, and the Davis Bridge Battlefield. The Department of the Interior may acquire lands by donation, purchase from willing sellers, or exchange.

Argument opposed

This bill didn’t go through regular order and was hurriedly thrown together to not only extend expiring provisions of the tax code but also make significant changes to Americans’ retirement opportunities. It also makes technical corrections to fix mistakes that were enacted with GOP tax bill that was also rushed through floor consideration.

There are too many issues being handled under this bill. A lot of these issues once again seem to benefit the wealthy. I don’t know about most middle class Americans, but I don’t own a horse and this I cannot deduct its value and receive a tax credit over a three year period. Once again, one of the few tax credits I am eligible for is being reduced/eliminated. Thanks again for nothing.

Too many things in one bill. This is what is a major problem with Congress. How about you vote for each things individually based on its merits & stop it with these package deals!

    No. Expire all taxes and start over with defined end dates for the taxes in effect. Live only within a defined tax stream projected extremely conservative budget.

    A whole lot of evil lies hidden in this bill as gifts for industries and I foresee global warming catastrophes from saying tribes can continue to produce oil, coal etc. Based on history, one suspects that by “tribe” the bill means corporate barrons. So many of us, including people suffering disasters particularly, need to tax relief, but this is too much for too many. Please produce a reasonable tax relief bill that helps most of us and harms as few as possible.
