Check the CRS: How Investment Funds Can Prepare for Common Reporting Standards
Posted by Tracy Dalpe on Tue, Nov 14, 2017 @ 07:28 AM

Across the world, countries are trying to combat potential tax evasion practices by increasing reporting requirements and tax transparency for cross-border business activities. One of the primary ways the U.S. addresses the tax evasion issue is through the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) has also taken an interest in worldwide tax transparency and used the FATCA as a model for its global tax transparency program, the Common Reporting Standard (CRS). CRS creates an information exchange among participating countries. To date, more than 100 countries have adopted CRS, including the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Luxembourg, Portugal, France, and the Cayman Islands.

The Senate Plan was not released as legislative text, and instead provides descriptions of the features included with their tax plan. The Senate’s draft legislation will be introduced once the House bill has cleared that chamber, and prompt action is expected in the Senate to pass its version. This will enable the two chambers to advance to a conference committee, where the differences between the two chambers’ versions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would be reconciled. However, the following differences are widely expected to slow this breakneck pace.

The House Releases Tax Bill: One Step Toward Tax Reform?
Posted by Chrissy Hammond on Fri, Nov 3, 2017 @ 10:40 AM

The House of Representatives released draft legislation on November 2 for the highly anticipated tax reform bill. This first attempt will be revised, perhaps extensively, by the House committees before a vote, which House GOP leaders want by Thanksgiving. Lawmakers and President Trump are signaling they want the passage of a reconciled bill by Christmas; however, the Senate plans to release its own tax bill the week of November 13, where significant areas of concern from moderate and conservative groups must be reconciled.
