Business IncomeTaxes (a Government Finance Issue)


Business income taxes are far more complicated than personal income and investment taxes. For business income taxes you need to keep track of a lot of different expenses, and determine which ones can be deducted when computing how much profit a company has made. Therefore, since I am not an expert in business accounting nor in business accounting, I will need to leave most of this up to the experts. However, there are a few things that I think must be done.

First off, many companies pay little or no income taxes. If a company really did not make a profit, then that should be okay. However, if they did, then they should always pay something, so there should be a minimum income tax.

Every business, whether a for profit or non-profit business, should pay taxes that pay for the protection and regulation that the government needs to provide. This could be based on some combination of net worth, expenses and gross income.

Even if a business is non-profit, it should still file a tax return showing expenses and revenue. If too much of its revenue goes towards expenses instead of towards the charitable work it is set up to do, then it should loss its non-profit status and be forced to pay some appropriate income taxes.
