Now that both the House and the Senate have now passed their own versions of a tax reform bill, the next step is for the House and Senate to reconcile the differences between their respective bills. This could involve a formal House-Senate conference, informal negotiations, or even the House simply accepting the Senate’s version of the tax reform bill.
