As the 117th Congress winds down, the Senate on Thursday evening passed bipartisan legislation that would provide dealers LIFO tax relief.
"Senate passage of the bill is great progress to provide dealers on LIFO much needed relief due to the pandemic and supply chain issues," Mike Stanton, CEO of the National Automobile Dealers Association, said in a statement Friday morning.
However, the House did not vote on its version of the LIFO relief bill on Friday, instead focusing on a nearly $1.7 trillion omnibus spending package that will avert a federal government shutdown. That bill was passed by the House and sent to the White House before Congress adjourned.
A new Republican-majority Congress will convene at the beginning next year.
