2024 Proposed Tax Laws Explained

As we step into the new year, the world of taxation is abuzz with discussions surrounding proposed tax laws for 2024. While some proposals have garnered significant attention, others are quietly making their way through legislative channels. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at some of the key proposed tax laws for 2024, providing insights into what they entail and how they may impact taxpayers.

Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act

One of the notable proposals is the Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act, which aims to address income inequality by imposing a corporate tax rate increase on companies with a high CEO-to-worker pay ratio. Under this act, corporations with a CEO pay ratio exceeding 50 times the median worker’s pay would face an increased tax rate. This proposal underscores ongoing discussions about executive compensation and income disparity in the United States.

Death Tax Repeal Act

Another significant proposal is the Death Tax Repeal Act, which seeks to repeal the estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes imposed under the current tax system. If enacted, this act would eliminate taxes on estates worth at least $13.61 million, impacting wealth transfer planning for family-owned farms, small businesses, and affluent individuals.

No Capital Gains Allowance for American Adversaries Act

The No Capital Gains Allowance for American Adversaries Act is another noteworthy proposal that aims to treat certain gains and dividends derived from specified countries of concern as ordinary income. This act, if passed, would impact the tax treatment of transactions involving countries such as China, Russia, Belarus, and Iran, highlighting the intersection of tax policy and international relations.

The Barcode Efficiency Act

Lastly, the Barcode Efficiency Act seeks to improve tax return processing efficiency by requiring the use of scannable codes and optical character recognition technology. By streamlining tax return processing and reducing errors, this act aims to benefit both taxpayers and the IRS.
