Joint Tax Committee: Explanation of Tax Legislation Enacted in the 112th Congress

Joint Tax CommitteeThe Joint Committee on Taxation yesterday released General Explanation of Tax Legislation Enacted in the 112th Congress (JCS-2-13):

This document ... provides an explanation of tax legislation enacted in the 112th Congress. The explanation follows the chronological order of the tax legislation as signed into law. For each provision, the document includes a description of present law, explanation of the provision, and effective date. Present law describes the law in effect immediately prior to enactment. It does not reflect changes to the law made by the provision or subsequent to the enactment of the provision. For many provisions, the reasons for change are also included. In some instances, provisions included in legislation enacted in the 112th Congress were not reported out of committee before enactment. For example, in some cases, the provisions enacted were included in bills that went directly to the House and Senate floors. As a result, the legislative history of such provisions does not include the reasons for change normally included in a committee report. In the case of such provisions, no reasons for change are included with the explanation of the provision in this document.
