The past 12 months have seen stagnation and inaction on US corporate tax reform. They have also seen the US rise to the unenvied position of first in the world when it comes to having the highest corporate tax rate. With the re-election of President Barack Obama, American corporate taxpayers finally have some degree of certainty of what is in store in 2013.

Republicans have maintained control of the House of Representatives, meaning bipartisan support is necessary for legislation to pass. Agreement has been reached on certain points, but comprehensive tax reform will require greater convergence and compromise between Obama and Congress.

This special report combines ITR’s coverage of 2012's pivotal tax reform moments, highlighting why the decisions of US multinationals to relocate overseas should be a clear signal to lawmakers that reform is necessary. The report also looks at whether an additional revenue stream will be required, and whether a European-style VAT might be the answer, before culminating in a post-election analysis of what Obama is likely to do next, and whether the political gridlock of the last year has caused a shift in the way business thinks about the issue of corporate tax reform.

This information will help you garner a clear understanding of what the US tax code will look like in 2013, and what your business can do to prepare for such changes.
