Business Tax Reform Deal Floated

There was a fascinating commentary in the Oregonian today by David Reinhard entitled “Such a (Bipartisan) deal”. It is an intriguing article. The article speaks on a grand compromise deal on the business tax reform debate. The draft plan is similar to the House Republican “Oregon Stability & Investment Plan.”

– Increase the business filing fee
– Cut capital gains taxes: Individuals 9% to 7%, corporate 6.6% to 5%
– Death Tax relief: For estates under $2 million
– Biz-Kicker for Rainy Day Fund: Take business tax kicker refund, use for rainy day fund (The idea of a rainy day fund is to have reserve funds for tough times so that taxes would not have to be raised).

    Why all the to do about the corporate minimum tax? If a corporation makes a profit they pay more. The $10 minimum is really a filing fee that should cover administrative costs. When a company turns a profit then collect the tax.
