Only the House can impeach the President. Impeach means bring charges against Only the Senate can put him on trial (after the House impeaches)

Only the House can originate tax bills. Other bills can originate in either the House or Senate. Then go to the other for passage. Except tax bills can only originate in the House.

All treaties the U.S. enters into with other nations, must be approved by the Senate only. All appointments by the President (cabinet, Supreme Court Justices) must be confirmed by only the Senate.

If the electoral college ends in a tie, only the House then elects the President
