Baker Botts Tax Partners Comment on Significant Changes in Senate Tax Bill

Media Alert

HOUSTON, December 4, 2017 – Last week, in the early hours of Saturday morning, the United States Senate passed their Tax Bill in a 51-49 vote. Now, the Bill likely goes into “conference” where the U.S. House and U.S. Senate set up a “committee”, which is where the appointed committee members will work out the differences in the House and Senate bills, leading to one final bill for the House, Senate and President Trump to review and approve. 

Baker Botts’ Tax practice has been focusing on Tax Reform since the election year, and have developed a “Baker Botts Tax Reform Video Series” focusing on certain key tax changes that companies should be keeping their eyes on. 

In the below video, Baker Botts partners, Don Lonczak, Gail Stewart and Michael Bresson discuss What’s next in the International Tax space; Executive Compensation Changes and The Future of Master Limited Partnerships.
