Reduce overall tax liability and improve cash flow with export tax incentives.

The Interest Charge-Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC) export tax incentive is available to manufacturing and distribution companies with foreign sales. The IC-DISC allows certain U.S. businesses to reduce their overall tax liability and improve cash flow through a commission mechanism by reducing the effective tax rate on export sales. The IC-DISC may be used by S corporations, Partnerships, and C corporations.

Foreign-Derived Intangible Income (FDII) is another export tax incentive available to C corporations. FDII is income derived by a US corporation from export sales or services. As part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Congress reduced the tax rate on foreign-derived sales and service income to 13.125%, aiming to encourage US corporation to export more goods and services, and locate more intangible assets in the U.S. C Corporations with foreign sales are eligible to benefit from FDII in addition to IC-DISCs.
