Insight On Business the News Hour

Is Iowa Bad for Business? The Tax Rates and Mike Owen

March 4, 2019

If you are a regular listener to the Business News Hour you know we've had all of the major business organizations on with us decrying the high corporate tax rate paid by businesses in Iowa and demanding that those taxes be cut. While they may not be paying that rate they, to a group, will say the "optics" are bad for business. Enter Mike Owen of the Iowa Policy Project. We talk about that plus the Research and Development Tax Credit, who it goes to and how many businesses don't pay taxes but get a check from the State of Iowa. You're in for some stunning news....
