Statements

  1. Our #TaxReform framework turns the page on a complicated & broken tax system. It’s simpler, flatter & fairer than the current tax code. It will put more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans. It also promotes economic growth & private-sector job creation by slashing the corporate tax rate – currently the highest in the developed world – and ensuring fair treatment for small businesses. Congress needs to get the final product to the president’s desk as quickly as possible.

    Claims

    The US Has the Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the Developed 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 is relatively high, it is not the highest in the developed world; that distinction goes to the United Arab Emirates with rates up to 55%.
