• Corporate Tax

A new era for corporate tax in America. 

For companies of all types and sizes, the recent tax reform has strengthened America’s financial integrity and corporate reliability. The flat 21 percent tax rate on C corporations means that smaller businesses now have access to nearly unlimited capitalization and funding methods. In addition, a long-established body of tax rules governing entities, combined with stable state and local rules, grants access to the discretion and stability offered to corporations without steep tax rates. Business owners consider the reduction in U.S. federal corporate tax rates as one of the most significant factors in navigating business decisions.
