Pelosi hopes to offer SALT relief in infrastructure package

House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she hoped Democrats can relax the current cap on state and local tax deductions as part of a larger infrastructure package.

Several New York and New Jersey House Democrats say they would not support other tax changes unless the state and local tax cap were lifted. Republicans put a limit of $ 10,000 on state and local deductions in their 2017 Tax Act, H.R. 1 (115). This has harmed those states and Pelosi’s home base in California in particular.

“I agree with your position,” Pelosi said during a briefing with reporters and later added, “Hopefully we can add it to the bill.”
