H.R. 4520 (108th): American Jobs Creation Act of 2004

Oct 11, 2004 at noon ET. On the Conference Report in the Senate.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 4520 (108th) in the Senate.

The American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub.L. 108–357) was a federal tax act that repealed the export tax incentive (ETI), which had been declared illegal by the World Trade Organization several times and sparked retaliatory tariffs by the European Union. It also contained numerous tax credits for agricultural and business institutions as well as the repeal of excise taxes on both fuel and alcohol and the creation of tax credits for biofuels.

The bill was introduced by Representative Bill Thomas on June 4, 2004, passed the House June 17, the Senate on July 15, and was signed by President George W. Bush on October 22.
