DISCUSSION AROUND POTENTIAL NEW TAX POLICIES AND ITS EFFECTS ON SELLERS

Obviously don't want this to be a political discussion, so let's leave that aside.

Over the last few days news has come out about the potential of a new tax regime (unclear whether this will apply to 2021 or 2022 will be first year, I am assuming 2022 for the sake of this discussion). If there is something that includes a hike in capital gains tax on individuals earning $1mm annually, wondering if anyone has any idea how this would apply to a 1-time sale of a company and if it does would we see a massive amount of people moving sales forward to this year? Would we see a drop in prices, compression of multiples, etc...
