US IRS waives addition to tax for a corporation's failure to make estimated tax payments of its CAMT

In Notice 2023-42, the IRS has waived the addition to tax under IRC Section 6655 for a corporation's failure to make estimated tax payments of its corporate alternative minimum tax (CAMT) under IRC Section 55 for a tax year beginning after December 31, 2022, and before January 1, 2024 (covered CAMT year). The IRS states that it is waiving the addition to tax under IRC Section 6655 only for the CAMT liability under IRC Section 55 and is doing so in light of challenges in determining whether a corporation is subject to CAMT (i.e., an "Applicable Corporation" under IRC Section 59(k)) and the amount of a corporation's CAMT liability under IRC Section 55. Although corporations will not be penalized under IRC Section 6655 for failing to make CAMT estimated payments, other additions to tax could be imposed if a corporation fails to timely pay its CAMT liability when due.

Ways & Means approves tax bills on TCJA cliffs, clean energy rollbacks

The House Ways & Means Committee approved three separate tax packages during a lengthy markup June 13, the "Tax Cuts for Working Families Act," "Small Business Jobs Act" and "Build It in America Act" that, when combined into the "American Families and Jobs Act," fulfill Chairman Jason Smith's (R-MO) commitment to develop a tax-based economic package springing from field hearings the committee held earlier this year in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Georgia. The final votes on the bills along party lines came after Republicans defeated a host of Democratic amendments addressing issues such as wage requirements and international tax.
