In an effort to get domestic
companies booking huge foreign
earnings to invest more in the U.S.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
President Barack Obama will propose
a one-time tax on the firms’ overseas
profits
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
to help fund the repair of the country’s
crumbling transportation
infrastructure, the Associated Press
reported Sunday.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
The White House apparently believes
it can drum up bipartisan support for
the proposal, part of the president’s
$4 trillion budget for the 2016 fiscal
year
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
By using the tax revenue on
construction projects in almost every
congressional district.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
The president is scheduled to send
the proposal to Congress Monday.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Spread out over six years, the public-
works program would dedicate $478
billion to repair and upgrade bridges,
highways and transit systems all over
the U.S., AP reported.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
About one-half of that money would
come from taxing the estimated $2
trillion in American corporate earnings
amassed abroad at 14 percent, a
much lower rate than the 35 percent
tax imposed on profits in the U.S.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
This proposal aims to deal with two
issues.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
One is that many US companies hold
profits offshore both to avoid US
taxes and to more efficiently fund
offshore ventures.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
This tends to increase offshore
investment by US corporations and
reduce their investments in the USA.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
The second issue is that the USA
could use more than a little
infrastructure repair.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
And that repair would be done by
American workers giving a boost to
the middle class who get bypassed
when companies produce and invest
offshore.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Investing in Public Works
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
The tax on foreign earnings proposed
by the president is supposed to pay
for public works programs such as
fixing bridges and highways as well
as mass transit. The Boston Herald
provides details.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Obama’s six-year $478 billion public
works program would provide
upgrades for the nation’s highways,
bridges and transit systems, in an
effort to tap into bipartisan support for
spending on badly needed repairs.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
If this indeed comes to pass investors
should look for where to earn a profit
from cement poured and construction
equipment manufactured.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Open for Negotiation
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
The president is required by law to
submit a proposed budget each year.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
This budget is for the 2016 fiscal year
starting this coming fall.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
When one party controls the White
House and the other controls
congress all budget issues are
subject to negotiation.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
This includes the onetime tax on
overseas earnings.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
As the Wall Street Journal notes,
linking the tax to infrastructure
improvements and repair is an
attempt to find common ground.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Mr. Obama wants U.S. companies to
pay a 14% tax on the approximately
$2 trillion of overseas earnings they
have accumulated, a White House
official said Sunday.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
They would face a 19% minimum tax
on future foreign profits.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Companies could reinvest those
funds in the U.S. without paying
additional tax.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
In making the pitch in his 2016
budget plan due Monday, the
president is elevating two issues that
previously gained traction with
lawmakers of both parties:
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
Changing the tax code on overseas
profits and raising spending on
highways and transit systems.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/profitable-investing-tips/tax-on-foreign-earnings
If the proposal eventually becomes
law it will result in a one-time tax on
foreign earnings and a huge stimulus
to the middle class with jobs related
to infrastructure improvements.
