Tax Breaks in Stimulus Fulfill Lawmakers’ Wish Lists (Podcast)

Jan. 8, 2021, 9:45 AM

The stimulus bill signed by President Trump was significant not just for its size but also because many lawmakers inserted tax items they’d been wanting for some time to become law.

On the latest episode of our weekly podcast, Talking Tax, host Amanda Iacone talks with Capitol Hill reporter Kaustuv Basu about what was in this bill and about why it will likely be far from the last financial aid package to come out of Congress. Basu also speaks about the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob and what it was like to watch this take place.
