    Or you could have just answered the question on your own, but if your dying to know:

    It is generally true, most corporations pay around a 17% tax rate; however, it is wrong to assume that many of them should be paying a 35% tax rate, considering that: 1) The US Corporate Tax Rate is progressive, just like other income taxes in the US and 2) very few corporations actually make enough income to pay a 35% corporate tax. There are more than 6,263 thousand registered domestic Corporations in the United States. The the highest marginal tax bracket is 35% on anything above $18,833 thousand. Very few corporations make over $18.833 million dollars, let alone $15 million, which would be a 38% tax, plus a $5,150,000 tax on top of that.

    If anything, majority of corporations (which would be 1120 and 1120S) make less than $100,000, which would put them anywhere from a 15 - 34 percent tax bracket.

    What kind of corporate tax system?


    This is subjective question..
    No, it's an objective question.


    How does one hold a subjective question to analyze what you are claiming to be 100% fact?
    A subjective would would be if I asked you, "do you think corporations are make more than $20 million dollars a year?" I didn't ask you that. I only asked you how much you thought corporations were making. That makes the question objective, not subjective.

    And the question was merely designed in a way to get you to think. Perhaps it was too much for you.

    Yea sure, bring in the Helicopter money ! " Stimulus " to increase " aggregate demand " .....

    Talking points from the left doesn't equal reality fortunately.

    When business and corporations started inventing in Texas because of its low tax atmosphere that increased employment and revenues.

    But you want to lower taxes on those with a propensity to spend ( what half of those people who don't pay income taxes ? ) while taxing corporations which in turn pass those taxes onto those people with a " propensity to spend ?

    Sounds like a Jonathan Gruber plan to fool idiots.

    " Hey America, we'll lower your taxes, but we're gonna tax the hell out of those greedy corporations "....

    ( Corporations are standing behind the Politicians laughing their asses off...)

    Look how much is spend on social programs and the promotion of socialist ideals in the US (including the oppression of religion unless it is islam currently). As long as that is even one penny, then it is enough to justify avoiding taxes that are used to weaken and enslave our people.

    A socialist using freedom and liberty, that is funny. A socialist they only get as far as Free in freedom and think it means they are owned something they haven't earned. They think liberty means making everyone else a slave to their philosophy.

    That is the point of the metric.
    The problem with this equation is that it lumps in all corporations, regardless of income, and assume all corporations have the same marginal tax bracket. They don't.
    Of course they don't, but the calculation doesn't assume anything of the sort. It is strictly a representation of a central tendency; in this regard it is the average corporate tax rate.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You're authoritarian nature shows so clearly. "Sure you can believe some things, but once you might do some stuff I disagree with you better get locked up or executed".

    Nope. Don't give a damn what you do as long it doesn't affect me and mine. I know your a socialist, but really, not everyone else in the world thinks like one.

    Actually the reason for so many recent corporate buybacks is that CEO and management bonuses are based on stock prices in these corporations, it has nothing to do with "investors".
