Corporate income tax

The corporate income tax is a graduated tax on net income: the rates incrementally increase for higher amounts of income, with the highest bracket being net income of $100,000 or more; rates range from 1% to 6.5%. The specific breakdown is as follows:

  • amounts up to $3,000 of net income taxed at 1%
  • amounts from $3,001 to $6,000 of net income taxed at 2%
  • amounts from $6,001 to $11,000 of net income taxed at 3%
  • amounts from $11,001 to $25,000 of net income taxed at 5%
  • amounts from $25,001 to $100,000 taxed at $940 plus 6% of the amount over $25,000; and
  • amounts exceeding $100,000 taxed at $5,440 plus 6.5% of the amount over $100,000.

Payment of the corporate income tax is due two-and-a-half months after the end of the tax period covered. Thus, for corporations whose tax year follows the calendar year, the tax is due on March 15th.
