President Biden on October 28 announced a “Build Back Better” framework that outlines spending provisions described as costing $1.75 trillion over 10 years and revenue offsets believed to add up to nearly $2 trillion over the same period. The proposed revenue offsets include significant business, international, and individual tax increases, increased IRS enforcement measures, and repeal of a Medicare prescription drug rebate rule. 

The revised bill’s significant business and international provisions include a new 15% corporate profits minimum tax on large corporations, a new 1% tax on corporate stock repurchases, limitations on interest deductions of international financial reporting groups, modifications to inbound and outbound international provisions -- including global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI), foreign-derived intangible income (FDII), foreign tax credit rules, the base erosion and anti-abuse tax (BEAT), and subpart F income -- and the extension of expensing (i.e., current deduction) of research and experimental costs under Section 174 through the end of 2025.
