ㅤThe one year delay would lower the cost of the tax bill by $100 billion, according to the newspaper. But it would likely dull the economic impact of tax cuts by encouraging companies to delay repatriating foreign profits or making investments [in the USA] until they can take advantage of the lower rate.”
