President Biden’s $1.8 trillion American Families Plan (AFP) represents the second installment of his “Build Back Better” campaign plan, and would more prominently position the government’s role in society. While his $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan (AJP) would finance infrastructure spending primarily through additional taxes on corporations, the AFP has “wealthy” individual taxpayers footing the bill for child care and education spending. Congress must first agree on a strategy to formalize both the AFP and the AJP in legislation before it hones in on negotiations over the provisions from these two plans. But before the prospects are explored for the AFP becoming law, an analysis of its key components is in order.

On April 7, the Virginia Department of Taxation announced that certain corporations subject to Virginia state income tax must file a one-time report by July 1, 2021. Corporate taxpayers that fail to file the report timely, or make a material misstatement or omission, may be subject to a $10,000 penalty. The purpose of the report is to show the difference between the amount of tax the corporation would pay if it filed as part of a unitary combined group and the amount of the corporation’s tax based on the current filing requirements.

President Biden recently unveiled his $2.29 trillion dollar plan to invest in transportation infrastructure and other capital projects, The American Jobs Plan (AJP). Although designed to stimulate the economy, the AJP may come with unfavorable tax provisions. Biden’s proposed eight-year AJP would be funded over the next 15 years through increases to corporate taxes and changes to U.S.-international business taxation. These permanent tax increases would offset the cost of the infrastructure and capital projects, and would begin to reduce federal deficits thereafter.
