A View From the Hill: A Guide to the Presidential Candidates’ Positions on Key Tax Issues

Election 2024: Download Your Guide to the Presidential Candidates’ Positions

Persistent economic uncertainty looms large on voters’ minds as we inch closer to the November election. Stubborn inflation and high interest rates put the economy front and center in the presidential race. Many of the candidates’ tax policies hinge on key provisions from the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that are set to expire in 2025 if no action is taken. These include everything from SALT caps, adjusted tax brackets and limitations on itemized deductions to reductions of the alternative minimum tax (AMT), qualified business income (QBI) deductions for pass-through business income, the deduction for research and experimentation costs, and much more.

The expiring TCJA provisions must be addressed in 2025, and they will be a focus for both political parties. Voters also will closely monitor proposals to stimulate economic growth and reduce the budget deficit.
