The House will vote on major tax reform legislation on Tuesday, Republican aides told the Washington Examiner.

The House Rules Committee, which sets the terms of the debate, including whether to allow amendments, will meet Monday on the legislation.

The vote timing suggests GOP leaders are confident they have the numbers to pass the legislation, which then heads to the Senate for consideration "likely Tuesday," according to Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas.

The legislation slashes the corporate tax rate to 21 percent and lowers the seven individual tax brackets. The legislation ends or limits some popular deductions and it eliminates the Obamacare insurance mandate in 2019.

President Trump called on Congress to pass the bill by Christmas.
