The bill’s introduction comes amid a push from a number of blue-state lawmakers for a rollback of the cap to be included in coronavirus relief legislation.

“The full SALT deduction must be restored,” Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.), the lead sponsor of the House version of the bill. “Without the full SALT deduction, families will leave New York and the last thing we need in the midst of the health and economic devastation of COVID-19 is to lose our residents and taxpayers. Congress must act immediately.”

The 2017 tax law capped the SALT deduction at $10,000. Politicians from high-tax states have been opposed to the cap, arguing it hurts their residents and limits their states’ abilities to provide robust public services. But Republicans, as well as some left-leaning tax experts, are defending the cap on the deduction, saying that repealing it would primarily benefit high-income taxpayers.

The House passed two coronavirus relief bills last year that included a temporary repeal of the SALT deduction cap, but those weren’t taken up by the Senate. The New Jersey House delegation on Wednesday urged congressional leaders and the Biden administration to include repeal in the next relief package.

It could be challenging for lawmakers to get a repeal of the cap included in a relief package this year, since Republicans and some centrist Democrats want to limit the price tag of a stimulus measure.
