Key provisions of the proposed Biden tax plan: potential tax changes worth watching

More details emerge regarding the structure of the American families plan.

A part of the Washington Policy series

The Biden Administration is advancing its “American Families Plan” through Congress this fall. The $3.5 trillion spending and tax bill includes federal programs that support lower-income families, the elderly via Medicare and tackle climate change. While passage of the legislation in 2021 is not guaranteed, the Biden Administration has expressed its commitment to moving the legislation across the goal line by year-end.
