Will Trump’s Tax Pledge Give him a Poll Boost?

Small-business and manufacturers’ groups praised a proposal by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to take the U.S. federal corporate tax from the highest to one of the lowest among developed nations. Trump included a call for a 15 percent corporate rate in a Detroit speech where he outlined other tax and economic reforms. Business groups have long said their members are hurt because U.S. companies pay the most federal income tax — a 35 percent rate, though the effective rate is often lower — among the 35 countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
