No specific exempt organization items in the Senate reconciliation bill

An agreement for a Senate reconciliation bill, announced earlier this week, does not include provisions specifically focused on charities or charitable giving.

Read legislative text and a summary of the proposed bill

The agreement announced this week between Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), reflects tax, climate change, energy, and health care provisions that would be included in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Read TaxNewsFlash. The agreement would impose a new 15% book minimum tax on corporations with average annual adjusted financial statement income of more than $1 billion.  For tax-exempt corporations, only unrelated business income would be taken into account for purposes of the $1 billion threshold.

KPMG observation

The House of Representatives passed the “Build Back Better Act” in November 2021—a bill that included provisions that would directly affect tax-exempt organizations. Read TaxNewsFlash. The version of the Senate reconciliation bill announced this week does not include those exempt organization proposals.
