Although H.R. 3200 primarily addresses health care reform in the United States, it also includes a tax provision that affects the U.S. taxation of U.S. source interest, dividends, rents and royalties paid to foreign companies otherwise entitled to preferential tax rates under U.S. income tax treaties.
