Partnerships, limited liability companies and other businesses could keep using state and local tax deductions that would be repealed for individuals, the chairman of the House tax writing panel said in a letter Thursday. House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady said so-called pass-through businesses, which often pay sales taxes and certain property taxes, would be able to deduct those levies for purposes of their federal tax bills.
The House tax-writing committee is entering its second day of work Tuesday to hammer out the details of the Republican tax cut plan. Here are the latest developments, updated throughout the day:Deductions for Medical Expenses under Discussion (11:35 a.m.)House Republicans discussed the elimination of deductions for medical expenses and adoption credits during a GOP conference meeting before the Ways and Means hearing started on Tuesday morning, according to Representative Tom Cole of Oklahoma.
The House Ways and Means Committee postponed its planned release of a tax bill by one day, moving the release to Thursday amid unresolved questions about the timing of a corporate tax rate cut and other proposals. While Chairman Kevin Brady said committee members were “pleased with the progress” they’ve made, the one-day delay reflects the challenge of crafting -- and then passing -- a complex bill by the Thanksgiving deadline that House Speaker Paul Ryan has imposed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
