Under the new tax law, Section 250 provides a deduction for excess returns earned directly by a U.S. corporation from foreign sales or services. The FDII amount is the amount of the corporation’s “deemed intangible income” attributable to sales of property to foreign persons for use outside the U.S. or the performance of services for foreign persons or with respect to property outside the U.S. Deemed intangible income is its gross income that is not attributable to a CFC, foreign branch, or domestic oil and gas income reduced by related deductions11 and an amount equal to 10% of the aggregate adjusted bases of its U.S. depreciable assets.
The Section 250 deduction to U.S. corporations is 37.5% of FDII inclusion amounts, creating an effective tax rate on such income of 13.125%.13 These rates apply to tax years 2018 through 2025. Beginning in 2026, this deduction is reduced to 21.875% with an effective tax rate of 16.406%.14 This deduction is not available for S corporations, RICs, or REITs.
