Lessons from the Amazon HQ2 Tax Break Race - Tax Foundation
States and localities give away billions of dollars annually in tax incentives, so Amazon’s situation is nothing new. But they’re an extremely inefficient way to provide tax relief or grow the economy. When incentivized firms relocate, incumbent businesses and individuals end up footing the bill for the increased demand in public services.

VCs await regulatory clarity on Opportunity Zones, the latest tactic to draw capital to the Heartland - VentureBeat
It’s an oft-cited statistic that 75 percent of venture capital in the U.S. goes to just three states: New York, California, and Massachusetts — and it has for years. If it’s going to take years to close that gap, why not offer an incentive for investors to put their money in other places?

That’s the thesis behind Opportunity Zones, a tax incentive program laid out by Congress in last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Opportunity Zone Communities May Require Additional Investments - Route Fifty
Opportunity zones, created as part of the Republican tax cut bill signed into law by President Trump late last year, promote long-term investment in low-income communities by allowing incentives for investors who develop projects in economically distressed areas. Investors who direct money to qualifying areas can receive cuts on their capital gains taxes after the assets are owned for a certain number of years.

What are the top issues manufacturing companies need to know about tax reform? BDO

How the New U.S. Tax Law Affects Community Development Projects - Urban Land Magazine
As Congress cobbled together the biggest tax overhaul since 1986, they nearly wiped out the essential sources of funding for large-scale community development projects—namely, three federal tax credit programs that attract private investment for neighborhood revitalization. Developers, financiers, and municipalities pushed back and managed to keep most of what they wanted intact. But now they are dealing with what some of them describe as the new tax law’s unintended consequences.

Does Your State Tax Manufacturing Machinery? - Tax Foundation
Taxing inputs in a sales tax leads to “tax pyramiding.” Throughout the production cycle, the tax can be assessed multiple times. This leads to higher prices for consumers, fewer job opportunities for workers, or limits the business’s ability to expand. If too many business inputs are taxed, a state’s sales tax could actually start to function as a gross receipts tax.

This week’s map looks at just one of the many business inputs that states tax in their sales tax bases: manufacturing machinery.

Federal Tax Reform & the States: Conformity & Revenue - Tax Foundation
The law modernizes the U.S. tax code by shifting from a worldwide to a territorial tax regime, which is in line with most developed nations. Under a worldwide system, all income, no matter where earned, is subject to domestic taxation, but with credits for taxes paid to other countries. Under a territorial system, a company is only taxed on domestic economic activity.

Corporate tax cuts are holding the promise of lower utility bills - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Some states are trying to prevent that from happening again.

However, there is likely to be a period of transition and market flux as investors restructure to optimize tax outcomes with implications for the underlying asset classes. Corporations are likely to separate the real estate aspects of their businesses.

Tax reform implications for manufacturers - Industrial insights - PwC
Both bills propose a permanent cut to the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20%. The Ways and Means bill wants that cut right away – as does the White House. But the Senate wants to delay it by a year. This would lower the cost of their bill by more than $100 billion and give them more revenue to use for other changes. Despite the debate over timing, both agree the cut should be permanent. That, combined with the transition to a territorial system of taxation with a 100% deduction for foreign dividend income, is very welcome.

Effects of Potential Tax Reform on the Real Estate Industry - BDO Real Estate & Construction Monitor
Now that the dust of a contentious presidential election cycle is settling, tax reform may be more likely in 2017 than in past years. There are currently two plans we can look to for guidance on reform: President Donald Trump’s revised plan and the House GOP plan. Both contain significant reductions in individual and corporate tax rates, limitations on deductions and simplification of administration of the tax system. While the plans are summaries of proposed tax reform and give us a basic understanding of their intentions, neither plan answers all our questions concerning implementation for taxpayers.

Corporate Income Tax Rates and Base Broadening from Income Shifting - Tax Foundation
Several studies have raised concerns about multinational corporations shifting income from the U.S., where the corporate income tax rate is relatively high, to lower-tax countries. These studies suggest that when the difference in corporate income tax rates between the U.S. and other countries is great, U.S. businesses’ foreign affiliates claim more income in their host countries, which results in lower U.S. tax revenues. Some studies have suggested that 35 percent of U.S. corporate tax revenue is lost due to income shifting.

Obama's Plan To Tax Overseas Earnings Draws Scrutiny - NPR
Last month, the European Union issued a report about Amazon and the taxes it pays. The online retailer does a lot of business in Europe but its corporate tax rate is in the single digits, says Crawford Spence of the University of Warwick in England. "They pay very little tax here, because most of their tax is paid in Luxembourg," he says. And Amazon isn't alone. Big U.S. companies, including Starbucks and Apple, have pared down their tax bill by funneling revenue into tax havens like Luxembourg and Ireland. Spence says it's totally legal.

Both would look at removing a number of tax preferences. The lack of U.S. corporate tax competitiveness, which is documented below, imposes three serious harms on the U.S. economy.

New Report on Corporate Tax Inversions Lacks Important Context - Tax Foundation
Bloomberg Businessweek reported that corporate tax inversions will cost the U.S. Treasury $2.2 billion in corporate tax revenue in 2015. According to the report, this is double what they cost the Treasury this year, and inversions will continue to cost $2 billion a year into the future. While $2.2 billion is nothing to scoff at, the report gives no context to this number. This makes inversions seem like a much larger problem for the corporate tax revenue than it really is.

Canada's Lower Corporate Tax Rate Raises More Tax Revenue - Tax Foundation
Part of the attraction is the substantial tax reforms that occurred over the last 15 years in Canada. First among these is the dramatic reduction in the corporate tax rate, from 43 percent in 2000 to 26 percent today. The U.S. currently has a corporate tax rate of 39 percent, but lawmakers are reluctant to do what Canada did, i.e. lower the tax rate, for fear of losing tax revenue. The natural question is: How much tax revenue did Canada lose? Answer: None.

What Canada Can Teach Us about Corporate Taxes - Tax Foundation
Corporate tax reform has become a major issue in the fiscal policy debate, with widespread disagreement over what impact various reform proposals would have on job growth in the U.S. One of the most discussed reforms – moving to a “territorial” system in which corporations are no longer double-taxed on profits earned abroad – has raised concerns that it would undermine domestic growth and employment. Real life evidence from Canada contradicts these worries, however, according to our newest analysis on international tax systems.
