It took just 10 changes to convince Republican holdouts in the Senate to say they'll vote for the GOP's tax bill.

That's according to Axios, which obtained a list of 10 provisions slated to be amended to the bill.

Those changes include a provision allowing people to deduct up to $10,000 on property tax — an issue pushed by Maine's Sen. Susan Collins.

Also in the bill is a provision raising pass-through deductions from the proposed 17.4 percent to 23 percent — which was an issue both Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and Montana Sen. Steve Daines were concerned about.

As of late Friday, there's only one confirmed "no" vote from a Senate Republican: Sen. Bob Corker says he can't "cast aside [his] fiscal concerns" to vote for the legislation.
