    Corporate Scofflaws? — Really?

    Are Corporations Paying Their Fair Share of Taxes?

    Sounds like a fair criticism, right? But wait — while at first blush it seems quite obviously outrageous and unfair; upon further review (with a little more logical analysis and a lot less visceral demagoguery), it's not quite as clear cut as Bernie would have us believe. Read why.

    But at what point does the amount of money compensated and the duration of benefits begin to work against you?

    Carried Interest

    Should Carried Interest be Taxed
    as Ordinary Income?

    Carried Interest is a share of any profits that the general partners of a private equity fund receive as compensation, despite not contributing any initial funds. This method of compensation seeks to motivate the general partner (fund manager) to work toward improving the fund's performance.

    Typically, the amount of carried interest comes out to around 20-25% of the fund's annual profit. While all funds tend to have a small management fee, the management fee is meant to only cover the costs of managing the fund, with the exception of compensating the fund manager.

    Under proposed financial regulation, carried interest will be taxed as ordinary income rather than its current 15% rate. Obviously, Wall Street, Banks and Fund managers are lobbying hard to preserve this extremely lucrative tax break.
