Understanding the Biden Tax Plan

A run through the major tenets of the Democratic Party candidate’s tax proposals and what they could mean to investors.

  • Biden is proposing an increase in the corporate tax rate – from 21% to 28%. Prior to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed under the Trump administration, the corporate tax rate stood at 35%.
  • Biden is also proposing a minimum tax of 15% on all companies that earn over $100 million in annual net income. He wants to double the tax rate on income by foreign subsidiaries of US-based companies.
  • Biden hopes to use revenues from tax increases to fund a significant infrastructure bill, which he argues will boost the US economy and create jobs.
