US Senate To Vote On Tax Treaty Protocols

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

16 July 2019


The United States Senate could soon approve ratification of four long-pending double tax avoidance treaty protocols.

The protocols are those approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on June 25, 2019, which would amend existing tax treaties between the United States and Spain (signed in 2013), Switzerland (signed in 2009), Japan (signed in 2013), and Luxembourg (signed in 2009).

During the week beginning July 15, 2019, the Senate is to decide on whether they should be put to a vote, after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) filed cloture motions on July 11.

The signed tax treaties must be approved by at least two-thirds of the full Senate.

An additional three double tax treaties, with Chile and Hungary (both signed in 2010) and with Poland (signed in 2013), remain pending.
