The chief Republican tax writer in the U.S. House of Representatives said on Tuesday that House Republicans want tax legislation to eliminate the corporate and individual alternative minimum taxes.
“House members … feel strongly that the House position should be to repeal permanently both the individual and the corporate,” U.S. Representative Kevin Brady told reporters.
He spoke after meeting with Republican lawmakers to discuss upcoming negotiations with the Senate aimed at reconciling the two chambers’ tax bills into a unified piece of legislation that Republican President Donald Trump can sign into law.

Meghan McCain accidentally reveals why she tunes out Trump’s wall-to-wall scandals
Meghan McCain unintentionally revealed why conservatives give President Donald Trump's corruption a pass.
The "View" co-host admitted she wasn't sure how bad it was that Trump allegedly pressured the Ukrainian president to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, a family friend of hers, in exchange for U.S. military and financial aid -- and she blamed the reporting on a constant stream of presidential abuses.
"I'm very skeptical of anything anymore because I feel like -- no disrespect to journalists, but every day the end of the world is coming -- so how bad is this really?" McCain said.
ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl assured McCain that this story was, in fact, a big deal.

‘The transcript has to come out’: Fox News pundit unloads on Trump over his Ukraine scandal
A Fox News pundit on Monday said the Trump administration had no choice but to release a transcript of a controversial call with Ukraine's president, in which Trump allegedly pressured the foreign country to investigate his potential Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Trump has insisted that the call with Ukraine's Volodymyr Zelenskiy was "largely congratulatory" and focused on corruption. But the Trump administration attempted to block a whistleblower complaint about the conversation.
"Look, the administration made a serious error in excessive secrecy. If it is what the president says it is, then the effort to conceal it makes it worse, right?" said Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt.
