Federal Issues

More than 100 trade associations, joined by national banking groups, are supporting H.R. 216, the Main Street Tax Certainty Act of 2019 – a bill that makes permanent the 20% deduction for Subchapter S pass-through entities that was included in the 2017 tax reform law. The House bill has a companion bill in the Senate.
