Episode Background:
On March 31, 2021 President Biden unveiled Made in America tax plan, the goal of which, besides increasing the corporate tax rate , is also to make American companies and workers more competitive by eliminating incentives to offshore investment, substantially reducing profit shifting, countering tax competition on corporate rates , and providing tax preferences for clean energy production. On April 5th, 2021, three top Senate Democrats released a proposal to overhaul the U.S. international tax system that could shape the outcome of the global tax revamp that the White House is pursuing to fund infrastructure spending. Additionally, on April 7, 2021, the Treasury Department released a report, the Made in America Tax Plan, which describes the proposed changes to corporate and international law that President Biden outlined in his infrastructure package, the American Jobs Plan.

President Biden had also proposed a new 10% "Made in America" tax credit in one of his pre-election proposals, for companies that invest in the U.S and promote revitalizing, renovating, and modernizing existing – or recently closed – facilities.

Just like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the new tax changes proposed by Biden and his Democrat colleagues are expected to have far-reaching tax implications for multinational corporations. The key question remains whether and when all of these proposals will get enacted into law and from when would those be effective. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she hopes to pass the package through the House by July 4, setting up the Senate to act before Congress breaks for August recess.
