President Biden signed the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” on Monday, November 15, 2021, after the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3684 on Friday, November 5, 2021, in a 228 to 206 bipartisan vote. The Senate had approved the same version of the bill on August 10, 2021.
A third version of H.R. 5376 (the Build Back Better Act) was released on November 3, 2021 by the House Budget Committee. This draft increases the state and local tax deduction, brings back many of the retirement proposals from the original September 13 draft of the Build Back Better Act, and retains the surcharge on high-income individuals, estates and trusts from the October 28 version.
A version of H.R. 5376 (the Build Back Better Act), released on October 28, 2021 by the House Budget Committee, eliminates many of the previously proposed tax increases that would have impacted individuals.
After months of negotiations, the White House has announced a framework for President Biden's Build Back Better agenda, a $1.75 trillion package of social infrastructure measures paid for by tax increases.
Senate Democrats have released details of two tax proposals – a minimum tax on large corporations and a tax on billionaires – that, if enacted, would be used to help pay for spending for social infrastructure under the Build Back Better Plan.
