While taxes did not seem to be one of the top issues in the November elections, both presidential candidates included a variety of tax proposals in their platforms. Also, there were a few tax-related initiatives on state ballots.

With Republicans in control of both the White House and Congress, there may be some greater success in getting tax legislation enacted.

Elections have consequences. While it’s clear that the next President will have his or her own agenda, and possibly the legislative power to back it up, predicting the future based on possible outcomes is risky.

Farmers and ranchers who were forced to sell livestock due to drought now have more time to replace the livestock and defer tax on any gains from the forced sales, the IRS said.
