J.P. Morgan scales back U.S. tax cut forecast, pushes out timing

NEW YORK, June 8 (Reuters) - J.P. Morgan analysts on Thursday scaled back their forecast on the size of possible U.S. tax cuts and pushed out the timing for such a move as President Donald Trump and leading Republican lawmakers struggle to deliver on their economic agenda.

In a research note, the analysts said they now see $100 billion of annual debt-financed tax cuts to take effect in the second quarter of 2018. They previously forecast $200 billion of such tax cuts per year to start in the third quarter of 2017. (Reporting by Richard Leong; Editing by Paul Simao)
