House Democrats are likely to propose a repeal of a controversial provision in the 2017 tax overhaul that imposes a tax on some coveted benefits for employees at nonprofit organizations like houses of worship, according to one Democratic and one Republican congressional aide.

The change, which is to be included in package of tax bills that could be debated as soon as Thursday, rolls back part of the 2017 Republican tax overhaul that increased the burden on tax-exempt groups, including churches, synagogues and mosques.
