S-Corp Supports Plan B

Text of the letter we sent to Speaker Boehner earlier today:

Dear Speaker:

The S Corporation Association would like to thank you for all your work over the past two years to protect closely-held businesses and ensure that as Congress considers changes to the tax code, privately-owned businesses are not harmed or singled out.

With that in mind, the S Corporation Association supports H.J. Res. 66, the “Permanent Tax Relief for Families and Small Businesses Act of 2012.” While H.J. Res. 66 would allow tax rates to rise for S corporation owners with incomes above $1 million — something we oppose —

AMT and Corporate Tax Rates Together? Watch Out

As we have previously reported, Chairman Charlie Rangel has a deep interest in passing a permanent “fix” to the Alternative Minimum Tax. Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Paulson has kicked-off efforts to cut the corporate tax rate in order to make our corporations more competitive on the world stage.

As BNA reported last week (subscription required), Chairman
