There are a number of items to watch for this week:
 The Senate is scheduled to continue considering H.R. 4213, today at 3:00 PM. See Two updates on H.R. 4213, American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act, June 11, 2010. My posts on H.R. 4213 are being aggregated under the category IRA Charitable Rollover. To learn more about IRA charitable rollovers, while being entertained, I highly recommend reading Conrad Teitell’s AVATAX, which he has generously shared. See Conrad Teitell's enlightening and entertaining production, AVATAX -- Planned Giving on Planet PandIRA.
 Last week, Rep. Sander Levin introduce H.R. 5486, which would limit GRATs in an identical way to H.R. 4849 (which the House recently passed). See On June 9, 2010, Rep. Sander Levin introduced another bill that would restrict GRATs – H.R. 5486. H.R. 5486 could be voted on by the House very soon. See Martin Vaughan- House to vote on a bill funded by restrictions on GRATs. The JCT increased the estimated revenue that restricting GRATs would raise from $4.450 billion to $5.297 billion. I was curious as to why this might happen and I received two thoughtful responses. See How much revenue would limiting GRATs raise over 10 years- $4.450 billion (H.R. 4849) or $5.297 billion (H.R. 5486)?
 Last week we learned that the resilient Senator Jon Kyl is “pretty close” to getting 60 votes to support his estate tax reform initiative. See Sen. Kyl states he is pretty close to gathering the 60 votes needed to pass estate tax reform bill: 35% top rate, $5 million exemption.
My sense is that this week  the Senate will definitely consider H.R. 4213 and will probably amend it in some way,  the House might vote on (and pass) H.R. 5486, and  Sen. Kyl will probably not gather the 60 votes he is seeking.
