H.R. 415: Stop Corporate Inversions Act of 2015

On January 20th, Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) and Committee Member Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) introduced legislation to tighten restrictions on corporate tax inversions, limiting the ability of American companies to lower their U.S. taxes by combining with a smaller foreign business and moving their tax address overseas.

The bill would save the U.S. nearly $34 billion in revenue, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) introduced companion legislation in the Senate.

The House bill was originally introduced in May by Rep. Levin and three dozen other Democrats.
