The answer is yes, but barely. The Senate is “discussing” H.R. 4213 which contains the now familiar extension of Section 181. Section 117 of the bill which has passed the House would extend 181 to the end of 2010. There is no guidance for how to treat the past 3 months, but we will worry about that when we get this extension past the Senate and on to Obama.
The Senate, per Senator Reid are actively discussing and negotiating the passage of the current version of the 2009 (now 10) Tax Extender Bill today. No one ever said government move swiftly. You can track the bill here: HR 4213.
