Tax Provisions in the Fiscal Cliff Act

By Paul Bonner and Alistair M. Nevius

The “fiscal cliff” legislation enacted on Jan. 2—the American Taxpayer Relief Act, P.L. 112-240—contains a large number of tax provisions. With some modifications, the act permanently extends provisions of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, P.L. 107-16 (EGTRRA), and Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003, P.L. 108-27 (JGTRRA). It also permanently takes care of Congress’s perennial job of “patching” the alternative minimum tax (AMT). It temporarily extends many other tax provisions that had lapsed at midnight on Dec. 31 and others that had expired a year earlier.
