State of Play
The tax agenda for the rest of 2014 is clear: inversions and extenders. The Obama Administration took action on inversions (with the potential for more to come), although it does not seem likely that Congress will follow anytime soon. There appears to be more confidence that the stalemate on extenders will be resolved after the November 4 elections, but exactly when or in what form an extenders package will become law remains to be seen.
