The Interest Charge-Domestic International Sales Corporation (IC-DISC) is an often overlooked and underutilized Federal tax incentive designed to encourage U.S. businesses to export products and certain services. This incentive provides permanent, annual savings by allowing income to be taxed at a 20 percent qualified dividend rate rather than higher ordinary tax rates. The incentive has much wider application than is commonly known and many businesses are missing out.
