Indiana’s Business Climate Overview

Our state is consistently recognized as a low tax state for business. We have no gross receipts tax and no inventory tax.


Corporate Income Tax

Indiana’s corporate adjusted gross income tax rate is continuing to decrease from the current 5.25% to a flat rate of 4.9% by July 1, 2021. This method of determination simplifies tax calculations for corporations and does not apply to S-corporations and not-for-profit organizations.

 Single-Sales Factor

Indiana now uses as single-sales factor for apportioning corporate income tax. The single-sales factor will calculate the Indiana portion based solely on the portion of a company’s sales in Indiana.
