What’s Happening to the Build Back Better Act?

Over the weekend, the Build Back Better Act was dealt a devastating blow when Senator Manchin announced that he would not vote on the Act before the Christmas deadline. So what’s the fate of the Build Back Better Act and will we still see tax changes in the near future? On this week’s episode of the Wealth & Law Podcast, Brent and Rachel chat with John Strohmeyer to discuss the future of the Build Back Better Act and what clients should be doing while the proposed changes are in limbo.

John Strohmeyer is the owner of Strohmeyer Law PLLC, in Houston, Texas. After earning his B.S. in Zoology from the University of Texas at Austin, John spent four years working for the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, primarily as the Night Manager, before beginning his legal education.
