Study Shows S Corps Pay Their Fair Share… And Then Some

Today, the National Federation of Independent Business and the S Corporation Association released a new study showing that S corporations pay the highest effective rates of any business type.

The study, authored by Quantria Strategies, LLC, compares the tax burden different business entities will shoulder in 2013 and finds that S corporations will pay the highest average effective tax rate (31.6 percent of their income), followed by partnerships (29.4 percent), C corporations (17.8 percent) and Sole Proprietorships (15.1 percent).

The results of this study come at a critical time for tax reform. Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp and Finance Committee

Built-In Gains Relief in Fiscal Cliff Deal

Happy New Year everyone!

As everyone knows, the President signed into law H.R. 8, the so-called mini deal addressing the fiscal cliff yesterday.

The agreement was the result of negotiations between Vice President Biden and Senate Republican Leader McConnell and effectively reduces tax revenues over the next ten years by just short of $4 trillion dollars.

It passed the Senate easily early New Year’s morning by an 89-8 vote and then, after a little drama with the House Republican conference, passed that body on a much closer 257-167 vote that evening.

For S corporations, the package is a mixed blessing. Under the agreement, top

Game On!

This morning, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp announced that the House would act this fall, prior to the November elections, to extend current tax rates while outlining a process whereby the Committee would consider broad, comprehensive reforms to the tax code in 2013. This is obviously very welcome news to S-Corps and other job creators! Here’s what he had to say:

I can firmly say our goal is: One, block massive, job-killing tax increases; and, two, enact - not just pass - comprehensive tax reform. And, there is strong support to use the expiration of the 2010 compromise

Super Committee, Tax Reform, and Tax Provisions

Congress returned this week with most people focused on the Super Committee and its prospects for producing a deficit reduction plan by the end of the year.

To recap, the Budget Control Act created a Super Committee of twelve members charged with coming up with at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction by the end of the year. How they devise these savings is up to them, but if they fail, we will see $1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts equally divided between defense and domestic spending starting in 2013 and spread out over nine years.

For tax wonks, the big question

Camp Pushes Comprehensive Reform

The Wall Street Journal reports that Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp wants to push tax reform that addresses both the corporate and individual tax codes. That’s good news for S corporations and the majority of employers out there. According to The Journal:

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee wants to cut the top U.S. tax rate to 25% for individuals and corporations, and cut or eliminate many popular deductions.

The odds of quick action appear slender. But the move, from Rep. Dave Camp (R., Mich.), is significant as a marker in what will likely be a multiyear debate
