The Senate's Republican leadership is considering changing the House GOP's tax plan to include a one-year delay in slashing the corporate tax rate, the Washington Post reports.

Other proposed changes include retaining seven tax brackets, instead of the four presented by the House, and eliminating state and local tax deductions for families.
