Yesterday, President Obama signed into law the Education Jobs and Medicaid Assistance Act of 2010 (H.R. 1586) (the “Act”). The Act allocates approximately $10 billion to local school districts to prevent teacher layoffs due to state revenue shortfalls, and approximately $16 billion to help states pay rising Medicaid costs without having to lay off public and private sector employees to raise funds. The Act funds approximately $1.1 billion of the allocations by eliminating the advance payment option for the earned income credit, and approximately $9 billion of the allocations through several changes to the international provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Part II of this memorandum lists these international tax law changes, and Part III explains them in greater detail.
