The Oldest Corporate Income Tax

Save pagePDF pageEmail pagePrint page

This map from the national Tax Foundation shows Hawaii as the first adopter of the corporate income tax.  It isn’t the first state to adopt a corporate income tax, however.  That was Wisconsin in 1911.  Why?  When Hawaii adopted the tax, it was still a Territory.  It didn’t become a State until 1959.
