Comparison of Key Energy-Related Tax Provisions in the President’s 2015 Budget Proposal and the Camp and Baucus Proposals

President Obama’s recently released budget proposal for the 2015 fiscal year contains energy-related tax provisions that include a permanent extension of the production tax credit (PTC) and a provision making it refundable.  The recently released discussion draft of the Tax Reform Act of 2014 from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp also contains numerous energy-related tax provisions, but would phase out and repeal the PTC, along with many other energy-related tax credits.  In late 2013, former Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus also released discussion drafts regarding energy-related tax provisions, including a proposal to consolidate the various tax incentives into a PTC or an investment tax credit.  This Special Report provides a comparison of the key energy-related tax provisions in each proposal.
