The nonpartisan research group, the Tax Foundation in Washington D.C. has released a study showing most states in America, including Wisconsin, tax businesses at a higher rate than any other country in the developed world.
Here is how the Tax Foundation came up with its findings. For each state, the Tax Foundation added the state’s corporate tax rate to the federal corporate tax rate. The results:
- 25 states, including Wisconsin have a combined corporate tax rate higher than top-ranked Japan.
- 35 states, including Wisconsin have a combined corporate tax rate higher than third-ranked Germany.
- 46 states, including Wisconsin have a combined corporate tax rate higher than fourth-ranked Canada.
- All 50 states have a combined corporate tax rate higher than fifth-ranked France.
