As for the income tax increase, Bradley says, “We are interested in what the law is currently and not interested in forecasting or setting estimates based on what might happen.” The income tax is set to revert from 5 percent to 3.75 percent Dec. 31 – the middle of the upcoming fiscal year. The committees continue their work into examining corporate tax incentives on Wednesday.
