According to the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, in 2018, 60 of America’s largest corporations zeroed out their federal income taxes on $79 billion in U.S. pretax income. Instead of paying $16.4 billion in taxes at the 21 percent statutory corporate tax rate, these companies enjoyed a net corporate tax rebate of $4.3 billion and effective tax rate of -0.5 percent.
