    • Historic Tax Credit: Proposed repeal
    • Artist-Museum Partnership Act (H.R. 1830): Not included
    • Self-created property: Proposed repeal for musical compositions and copyrights
    • Estate tax: Proposed repeal in 5 years and an immediate doubling of tax exclusion
    • State and Local Tax (SALT) deduction: Proposed repeal of the deduction for income and sales taxes, and the deduction for property taxes is capped at $10,000 per person.

    The Arts Action Fund urges you to take two minutes now to contact your member of Congress.
