Republicans in the House and Senate have passed their respective versions of a sweeping tax overhaul over the past couple weeks. The goal now: Reconcile those versions into a single piece of legislation that both groups of lawmakers can pass, then move them along to President Donald Trump, who has a stated goal of signing off on some sort of tax plan by Christmas.

That’s easier said than done, but right now, momentum is on Republicans’ side. And while details could change, we at least have a broad idea of what’s coming should the GOP succeed.

Investors could do well to start targeting and edging into positions that stand to benefit from a major overhaul of the American tax code.

Here are the seven best ETFs to buy in anticipation of a Republican tax victory.
