The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) significantly changed the way in which the tax code treats the foreign profits of U.S.-based multinational corporations.
The new tax law eliminated the additional domestic tax on foreign profits repatriated to the U.S. by enacting a “participation exemption,” the centerpiece of what is called a “territorial” corporate tax system.
At the same time, the TCJA enacted new anti-base erosion provisions aimed at income stripping and a minimum tax on certain foreign-source profits.
