Increases in Tax for Corporations:
Increasing the corporate income tax rate from 21% to 28%.

Encouraging Corporate Social Responsibility:
Establishing a Manufacturing Communities Tax Credit to reduce the tax liability of businesses that experience workforce layoffs or a major government institution closure.

Offering tax credits to small business for adopting workplace retirement savings plans.

Expands several renewable-energy-related tax credits, including tax credits for carbon capture, use, and storage and a restoration of the Energy Investment Tax Credit (ITC). The Biden plan would also end tax subsidies for fossil fuels.
