No, United Arab Emirates and Japan both have higher corporate tax rates than the US. But in any case the rate is not the whole story. No one, individual or corporation, pays tax at their “tax rate.” You don’t, I don’t. The AVERAGE corporate tax rate, due to – well, let;s just say loopholes – is about 12.1% (on profits, not income). And many LARGE corporations pay NO taxes, or have turned taxation into an income-producing activity, such as GE, Verizon, Boeing, just for examples.
