[COLUMN] Top corporate income tax rate

Biden tax plan series

WE have been concerned about President Biden’s proposal to raise the federal corporate income tax rate from 21% to 28%. Lawmakers have suggested raising the rate to 25%. Including state corporate taxes, a 25% federal corporate income tax rate would result in a combined average top corporate tax rate of 29.53%t – higher than the 23.51 average among industrialized countries. The combined top corporate tax rate would be higher than in most other country in the industrialized world.

Current tax law:

  • Current corporate top income tax rate is 21%.

Proposed tax changes:

  • The corporate top income tax rate would be raised to 28%.
