lowering the federal corporate income tax rate result in employers creating
more jobs?
Throughout US
corporate tax history, Americans have debated whether or not lowering the rate
results in job creation. Proponents of lowering the corporate tax rate to
create jobs argue that it incentivizes job creation in the United States
instead of overseas, encourages increased investment in research and
infrastructure, and passes savings on to consumers through lower prices.
Opponents of lowering the corporate tax rate to create jobs argue that it
results in more profits for corporations without affecting job creation, and
that unemployment rates were the lowest in recorded US history during the time
when corporate income tax rates were highest. Our
45th website explores the pros and cons in the debate over corporate taxes and
jobs.
