Corporations do not pay taxes ...
Corporations are comprised of people, and it's the people who pay the tax, not the corporation. The corporation's building does not pay the tax, the corporation's machine on the factory floor does not pay the tax.
The tax that "the corporation pays" is going to diminish the profitability because it is paid by shareholders in lower earnings which inhibit increasing dividends and also to reinvest in expansion to increase their value. Shareholders are one group who pay the tax.
A second group who pay the tax are the workers as money is not available to increase wages and benefits. A third group who pays the tax is you and I, the consumers, as the prices have to be increased in order to pay for that tax.
We can make huge strides toward developing financial sanity in our nation's budgetary process if we could get more people to understand that the corporate tax is really paid by shareholders, workers, or consumers.
Calling it a corporate tax is a political manipulation to make people believe that someone else is picking up the tab and it disguises who the real taxpayers are.
