Effective Corporate Tax Rate Falling

Further to my earlier post critiquing the recent  Mintz study -  which argued that cuts in corporate tax rates are not significantly denting corporate tax revenues – I looked up the effective corporate tax rate (income tax paid as a percentage of taxable corporate income.) Here is what shows up on CANSIM 180-0003.

 

2006 – 31.0%

2007 – 29.9%

2008 – 27.5%

2009 – 27.0%

 

Does anyone detect a trend?

>>Does anyone detect a trend?

Yes. A rate which is absurdly high by OECD standards was even higher a few years ago.

Patric Waters,

just checked out data on corporate taxes on OECD website (OECD Tax Database, C. Corporate and Capital Income Taxes, Basic (non-targeted) corporate income tax rates).

Your statement did not bear out. Corporate taxation in OECD countries ranges from 12.5% in Ireland to 39.5% in Japan. Note that in Greece the rate is 20%.

Would you like to live in Greece or Ireland?
