    The headline of the above article and its contents, mention an increase in the corporate rate to 38%, but the attachment to the article, which is the administration’s budget, indicates it is a proposed raise to 28%. Could the article have a typo in it?

    • TaxConnections Admin says:

      Raise The Corporate Income Tax Rate To 38%

    PDF page 8 of the attachment above in your response says the corporate rate is proposed to increase to 28%. There is no mention of 38%. Please point to where in the document you attached, the increase is to 38%. Thank you

    • TaxConnections Admin says:

      Hi Denise,
      I want to personally thank you for catching this error. You are absolutely CORRECT that the corporate rate is 28% and not the stated 38%. Tomorrow we will send out a statement notifying you caught the error. Great Eagle Eyes:) Great job on your part and we are very grateful you took the time to report it back to us.
      Thank you,

      • Denise Robeson says:

        You are welcome. While you are at it: It is Like-Kind exchanges, not Like-Minded exchanges in the Close Loophole section.

        Happy to help
