New Tax Provisions Included in the Inflation Reduction Act
The bill is designed to not raise taxes on small businesses
President Biden signed The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law on 8/16. The IRA includes significant provisions related to climate change, health care, and, of course, taxes. The IRA also addresses the federal budget deficit. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the IRA is projected to reduce the deficit by around $90 billion over the next 10 years.
Although the IRA falls far short of Biden’s originally proposed $2 trillion Build Back Better Act, the $430 billion package nonetheless is a sprawling piece of legislation bound to affect most Americans over time. Here’s an overview of some of what the bill includes.
Significant tax provisions
For starters, how is the federal government going to pay for all of it? Not surprisingly, new taxes are part of the equation (along with savings from, for example, lower drug prices). But the bill is designed to not raise taxes on small businesses or taxpayers earning less than $400,000 per year. Rather, wealthier targets are in the crosshairs.
