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. It also expands retirement opportunities, helps start-ups, and makes needed technical corrections to the tax code. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. 11*29*18.....

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!

    Again. Republicans not increases the country’s revenue. Spending and spending raising the deficit. It’s simply not sustainable coming from the purported party of fiscal responsibility.

    The practice of combining several issues into one bill should be discontinued. Each one needs to stand alone.

    Stop bundling bills like the cable companies. Each thing must be considered and voted on separately.

    Not a fan of all this bundling tax issues. Anything that has “PREVENTS TAX HIKES” needs to have more detail—is it tax hikes for the 1% that deserve the higher taxes, or is it for the rest of us that are not in the undertaxed 1%? Just start addressing tax issues one by one, NO MORE MASSIVE BUNDLING PACKAGES!!!!

    "....to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." I would implore any member of Congress to vote yes and protect our nation's history. Furthermore, they should read above excerpt from the Organic Act of 1916 and keep it in mind when considering the abolition of any park unit, such as the newly established Bears Ears NM.

    This cobbled together bill with its handwritten margins and the lack of time for study make it a dangerously flawed bill . Don’t make it permanent, make it history and do it right the next time.

    From what I read this will result in $53B loss in tax revenue which is supposed to go towards things for the US. If we lose that much by 2029, when things will likely be even more expensive than they are now then what are you going to do then? Continue taking taxes from the poor or middle class while the upper class continue to thrive...don’t like this

    I support this bill but would encourage the government to figure out ways to decrease the US debt. If tax revenues will be decreased so should government spending.

    How about full discussion of each part of the bill by BOTH parties, instead of Republicans springing this on the country. I want to see evaluation and discussion by BOTH parties, and consideration of intended and unintended consequences on the floor.

    Not enough information is provided to evaluate who they are taking land from, who will profit, etc. I generally support parks like this when done without corporate money grabs and cruelty, but I can't tell here, so I say nay.

    Saw the discussion on C-Span. Why couldn’t there be regular committee meetings, Republicans? Haste makes waste, just like last year’s tax bill. Better stop and do things right!
