Corporate Tax Rate Reduction?

Has tax reform - also known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act - really reduced corporate tax rates?



What were the old rates?

Prior corporate tax rates varied from 15% to 25% to 35% for the most profitable corporations organized as C Corporations.


What are the new rates?

Well, there are no new rateS ... there is only one rate - a 21% flat rate on all corporate taxable income.


So how does that impact me?

After all the political rhetoric about how corporate tax decreased to 21% from 35%, what do you think of this tax INCREASE small corporation owner?


Yes, I said that right ... you have probably been paying tax at a marginal rate of 15% or maybe 25% with an effective rate near 18%.


Do you realize that the tax DECREASE promised by the TCJA is actually a tax INCREASE for you?


Your tax is now a flat 21% instead of a graduated rate from 15% to 25% to 35% ...

Thus,

  • if your taxable income was $25,000 before, you paid $3,750 in tax, now you will pay $5,250

  • if your taxable income was $60,000 before, you paid $10,000 in tax, now you will pay $12,600

​Be careful what you wish for ...
