Ten Corporations Would Save $82 Billion in Taxes Under Obama’s Proposed 14% Transition Tax

Earlier this week, President Barack Obama released details of his proposed federal budget for the fiscal year ending in 2016. The proposal includes a one-time “transition tax” on the offshore profits of all U.S.-based multinational corporations. The President’s plan would tax these profits at a 14 percent rate immediately, rather than at the 35 percent rate that should apply absent the “deferral” loophole. This proposal would provide huge tax cuts to many corporations currently holding profits, often actually earned in the U.S., in low-rate foreign tax havens.
