Tax Reform: Comparison of House Proposal, Senate Proposal and final H.R. 1 Bill – Highlights Affecting Retirement and Individual Savings Arrangments

On December 20, 2017, the House and Senate passed H.R. 1, the final tax reform bill (the Bill). The Bill will soon be signed into law by President Trump, resulting in fulfillment of one of the GOP’s major 2016 campaign promises. The Bill will affect retirement and other tax-advantaged savings arrangements and, in some cases, will become effective as soon as it is signed. Ascensus has prepared a comparison chart showing the differences between the current rules, the original House and Senate proposals, and the new rules provided in the Bill.
