Infrastructure Bill Heads to President for Signature

The much-anticipated Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (the Act) has passed the House of Representatives months after its approval in the Senate. The legislation contains the following noteworthy provisions.

  • Extends by five years the minimum and maximum “corridor” for determining interest rates for single employer pension funding, relief initially granted by the American Rescue Plan (ARPA)
  • Modifies disaster tax relief by ensuring that taxpayers will have at least a minimum 60-day time frame to complete certain tax-related acts following a “federally declared disaster”
  • Amends the Internal Revenue Code definition of “broker” to include anyone responsible for regularly providing services effectuating transfers of digital assets (cryptocurrency)

The bill awaits President Biden’s signature for enactment.
