    Claims

    The US Has the Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the World
    The US does have a high statutory rate (up to 35%), but significant deductions and exemptions mean companies actually end up paying a much lower rate; the effective tax rate is about average. Furthermore, while the statutory rate relatively high, it is not the highest in the world; that distinction goes to the United Arab Emirates with rates up to 55%.

  2. In 1986, when we lowered our corporate tax rate we were the third lowest corporate tax rate in the world. Today, we’re absolutely the highest. And we look at the rest of the world, they’ve caught up. Today, we are by far the highest corporate tax rate in the world.
