Wells Fargo Asset Management published a paper entitled, "Tax Reform - Overseas Cash and Repatriation Implications," we learned from a new Wells Tweet. They explain, "Prior to 2018, the United States' relatively high corporate tax rate incented many domestic companies with international operations to locate foreign subsidiaries in tax-haven countries and delay U.S. tax payments. Under the pre-reform tax code, these foreign subsidiaries were subject to the same 35% maximum federal statutory corporate tax rate as their domestic counterparts, with income taxes being levied on those profits when foreign cash was repatriated, or returned, to the United States. Foreign subsidiary income that remained overseas was recorded with a deferred tax liability on parent financial statements, but no cash was paid out for U.S. taxes. The foreign subsidiary typically paid taxes to the country of domicile at the prevailing overseas tax rate, resulting in an overall lower U.S. effective corporate tax rate -- currently estimated at 18.6%. To offset double taxation, the corporation claimed a foreign tax credit when cash was repatriated to the U.S., so the total taxes owed to the U.S. were net of foreign taxes already paid."
