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.

Amazon Isn’t Afraid of NYC’s High Taxes - Bloomberg Inc.’s highly publicized search for a second headquarters is hurtling toward a conclusion, with the e-commerce giant nearing deals to open new offices in two locales. One is an area of northern Virginia where homes are expensive but taxes are relatively low. The other is Long Island City in the New York borough of Queens, a place that combines scarce housing with some of the highest state and local taxes in the U.S.

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.

State Corporate Income Tax: E-Commerce Study 2018 - Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting
Multistate companies increasingly sell purely electronic products and services to customers all over the country but have a physical footprint limited to one or two states. In fall 2017, Thomson Reuters sent a survey to state taxing agencies asking how these “pure e-commerce transactions” affect nexus and apportionment for state corporate income tax purposes. Thomson Reuters experts Rebecca Newton-Clarke and Emily Porter have analyzed these survey results and created a detailed study based on their findings. Read on for a look at the results.

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.

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.

GE move could signify larger trends toward cities - Connecticut Post
The competition to land General Electric’s headquarters, with Connecticut’s hopes appearing to wane in recent weeks, is often framed in terms of taxes. Connecticut, by many measures, is a high-cost state for businesses, and GE is supposedly looking for relief.
But the nature of GE’s Fairfield headquarters — along with details about its preferred landing spots — raise the possibility that costs may only play one role, and that the company leaning toward the kind of centralized, walkable communities that are in fashion now and away from an isolated, suburban office park like its current space.

Increasingly, American companies have been trying to reduce their tax liabilities through a tactic known as a corporate inversion — buying smaller foreign competitors and using those purchases to move their headquarters to countries with more favorable tax rates than the United States’.

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.

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.

The ITCI considers more than forty variables across five categories: Corporate Taxes, Consumption Taxes, Property Taxes, Individual Taxes, and International Tax Rules. The ITCI attempts to display not only which countries provide the best tax environment for investment but also the best tax environment to start and grow a business. The ITCI finds that the United States has the 32nd most competitive tax system out of the 34 OECD member countries.

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.
