Last year’s tax reform legislation replaced the graduated corporate tax structure with a flat 21 percent corporate tax rate. This new maximum tax rate for corporations is effective for tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2017.

The blended rate applies to all fiscal year corporations whose fiscal year includes Jan. 1, 2018. Fiscal year corporations that have already filed their federal income tax returns that do not reflect the blended rate may want to consider filing an amended return.
This change will affect many tax forms and instructions that corporations use. For a complete list, see the 2017 Fiscal Tax Year Filers Must Use Blended Corporate Tax Rates page on IRS.gov.
