Benefits of the Export Tax Credit
Your business operations won't change after a designation. However, owners of eligible companies must form a tax-exempt Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC), maintain its own financial records, and file tax returns. Once an IC-DISC is established, the entity’s new tax status yields several key benefits, such as:
- Tax-exempt sales commissions are paid to the IC-DISC by the related supplier (resulting in a 35% tax benefit to the supplier)
- The IC-DISC pays a qualified dividend to shareholders taxed at the qualified dividend rate of 15% (or, in some cases 20 percent)
- IC-DISC's net result is a permanent 20% tax savings
Acena Consulting helps business owners reduce the Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation's tax responsibilities to drive overall corporate liquidity for the organization.
