On Jan. 16, House Ways and Means Committee chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) and Senate Finance Committee chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) announced a bipartisan, bicameral tax framework agreement on business and individual tax relief called the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act of 2024.

The measure also lowers the 50% bond test threshold to 30% for 4% LIHTC bond projects, which will allow for more production and lower costs.
  • Extend the 100% Bonus Depreciation. Businesses were permitted to claim 100% bonus depreciation in 2022 for qualifying assets placed in service in 2022. The rate decreased to 80% in 2023, and was set to drop to 60% in 2024, 40% in 2025, 20% in 2026, and zero in 2027. The legislation would allow businesses to claim 100% bonus depreciation for investments in machines, equipment and vehicles for tax years 2023, 2024 and 2025, providing a retroactive tax benefit for 2023.
