2018: The Year in Public Finance Tax

    View Authors February 2019

    To keep you informed about developments in public finance tax, our Public Finance Tax Practice publishes the Public Finance Tax blog.

    After 2017 closed with a bang, when Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), which eliminated tax credit bonds and the tax-exempt advance refunding of tax-advantaged bonds, we spent 2018 muddling through the aftermath. Then, the final weeks of 2018 closed with a bang, too, when Treasury, notwithstanding the government shutdown, released final private activity bond public approval requirements and proposed regulations, which we had awaited for over 30 years, regarding when tax-exempt bonds are reissued. On the blog, we followed these changes, explored some fundamental questions about the TCJA and reviewed the year-end regulatory flurry.
