Corporate Tax in Juneau, Alaska

Find the Right Lawyer Now

In Juneau, Alaska, a "corporation" is defined as a legal entity that's separate from its owners. Thus, from a legal standpoint, the owner of a corporation and the corporation itself are not the same "person."

This doctrine is identified as "corporate personhood." While the concept is somewhat abstract, the law of Alaska treats corporations as individual persons, for most purposes. This means that, legally, corporations have many of the same rights, privileges, and obligations as living, breathing human beings.

One of these obligations is the duty to pay income tax in much the same way as an individual person.

Corporate Tax Rate in Juneau, Alaska

Every corporation in the United States is required to pay federal income tax. Most states also have a corporate income tax, which corporations doing business in Juneau, Alaska are required to pay.

The federal corporate income tax rate is different from the tax rate that applies to individuals. The highest corporate tax rate at the federal level is 35% of income - applying to companies that make over $18.3 million per year. Corporations earning under $50,000 pay a 15% tax rate. There are various tax brackets in between.

The corporate tax rate in Alaska may also differ from the individual tax rate. However, in many states, the corporate tax rate is lower than the individual income tax rate. This is because many states believe that the best way to attract business (and consequently improve their economies) is to have a low corporate tax rate.

Corporations in Juneau, Alaska are required to pay both the state and federal corporate tax. Failing to pay either (or both) of these taxes can result in severe legal penalties, including fines that may prove ruinous, especially for smaller businesses.
