Podcast overview

This year, like most all others, a series of tax provisions, known as “the extenders,” are scheduled to expire on December 31. Carol Kulish, Jennifer Gray, and John Gimigliano highlight a few of these items, discuss why Congress seems to like temporary tax policy, and then examine the dynamics of getting them extended (including so-called “Zombie" extenders—expired provisions that are brought back to life).
