The new law eliminates graduated corporate rates and provides a flat 21% rate for taxable income of all C corporations, including those which are PSCs (personal service corporations).
The new rate will greatly benefit corporations formerly subject to higher graduated rates. Pass-through entities (S corporations and partnerships) may want to reconsider the “C” form of business to take advantage of the new rate, particularly if there is a business reason to accumulate earnings in the business for future growth.
