WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama's bipartisan tax plan on Monday overwhelmingly passed its first test in Congress as the Senate agreed to formally begin debate on the measure.

By a vote of 83 to 15, the measure easily cleared the 60-vote hurdle needed for most legislation to advance in the 100-seat Senate. A final Senate vote on the tax bill is expected on Tuesday or Wednesday. The House aims to consider the bill by the end of the week.
