Reduced Taxes for Exporters Extended: Are You Taking Advantage of the IC-DISC?

Does your Company export goods to Canada, Mexico, or other countries?  Do you provide engineering, architecture, or design for property constructed outside the United States?  If so, you may be eligible for a Federal income tax incentive known as an Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation (the “IC-DISC”).  The IC-DISC could potentially save you a significant amount of US income taxes.

What is the IC-DISC?

Many closely held businesses are enjoying the benefits of the IC-DISC.  However, many are overlooking the benefits completely, not realizing they qualify, or only claiming a fraction of the benefits which are explicitly allowed and encouraged in the tax code. At a bare minimum, the IC-DISC can effectively reduce the top federal tax rate on qualified goods and services from 35% to 25%, or much, much lower.  Companies already claiming IC-DISC benefits that are not performing a “transaction by transaction” calculation are probably not getting the intended, allowable benefits the tax code explicitly encourages.
