Corporate Tax

Biden’s corporate tax fee is a sensible scapegoat »Albuquerque Journal

This is tax day!

Those of you who marked the position of the sun and moon by April 15th had to adjust this year. Many of you have likely recently visited with your taxpayer. You may have asked, “So what is Biden going to do?”

First, let’s talk about this tax person. Accountants come in many shapes and sizes. I suppose, like the average American, forms have turned for bad over the years. Instead, let’s focus on the taxpayer’s age and the life experiences they have had.

………………………………………….. …………..

There is a possibility that your taxpayer is 80 years of age or younger. Probably a lot less. But to clarify my point of view, I will appoint an 80-year-old tax person. He was born in 1941. He began practicing in 1962 (or around that time).

He’s just finished his 49th tax season. A taxpayer’s age is measured by their tax season, like rings on a tree. The only difference is that you have to ask them because it is illegal to cut them open.

At the birth of our taxpayer, the corporate tax rate was 24%. While he was in disposable diapers, that rate rose to 31% shortly after Pearl Harbor to help fund the cause of the war.

The Korean War raised the rate to 51%. It stayed over 50% until 1965 when it fell to 48%. The funding needs of the Great Society and Vietnam increased to 53%. It was lowered to 48% in the 1971 recession and lowered to 34% in another recession in 1988.

It stayed there until 1993 when the First Clinton Act raised it to 35%. That was the rate until 2018, when it fell to 21% and where it is now.

This means that our 80-year-old practitioner never saw a sentence below 24% until three years ago and he could read in 1940. In the first 25 years of his tax practice, he never saw a rate below 46%. From the moment it was able to run, the rate has only been below 31% from 2018 to date.

Biden’s infrastructure plan, which I’ll call Tax Plan I, is to increase the company’s rate to 28%. As opponents tell us, this will lead to the collapse of the US economy. As Inigo Montoya said in “The Princess Bride,” I don’t think that means what you think it means.

It’s not even key to funding the Biden infrastructure plan. The big stuff is attacking multinational corporations. There is a corporate income tax based on the income reported in the book. There is a demand for a global minimum tax.

There is a penalty for inversions where a US company claims to be moving offshore while keeping all of its valuable items, including its cash and key people, in the US. There are more corporate tax audits.

All that strange stuff is really complicated. So we’re focusing on 28%. That’s more than 21%. Easy to write, easy to discuss. There was so much talk that Biden said he could live with 25%.

Our 80-year-old might be wondering what the whole kerfuffle is. We defeated Hitler with a rate of 31%. Clint Eastwood’s fictional Walt Kowalski helped build the Gran Torino in 1972 when the rate was 48% and the U.S. auto industry did not call for bailouts.

As a tax commentator, I only play the hand that is given to me. Expect more wailing and gnashing of teeth at a corporate tax rate of 28%. However, pay attention to what is not included in Tax Plan I.

The individual tax rate is not increased. There is no increase in capital recovery rates. That stuff is in Tax Plan II. Neither plan reduces the wealth that can be transferred from an estate tax-free.

But we’re now playing a game in the Senate called Joe Manchin Says, by the same rules as Simon Says.

Adopt more tax legislation through reconciliation? Hah, hah, you’re losing! Nobody said “Joe Manchin says.” If the new government is looking for tax revenue, maybe you and I should just point to the next multinational and say, “I think I saw this guy flash a bunch of 50s.” But to be sure, say “Joe Manchin says” first.
