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%.
