Corporate Franchise Tax

Most corporations engaged in business in Mississippi are subject to franchise tax, as levied in Sections 27-13-5 and 27-13-7 of the Mississippi Code. Franchise tax is a tax that is assessed on the company’s capital value. The capital value for the corporation is calculated based on:

  • Capital stock issued and outstanding; and
  • Paid-in Capital, Surplus, and Retained Earnings, including deferred taxes, deferred gains, deferred income, contingent liabilities, and other true reserves.

For multi-state corporations, capital is pro-rated and applied to the corporation’s total capital value to calculate the amount of capital to be apportioned to Mississippi. The apportioned capital is then multiplied by the franchise tax rate to determine the Mississippi franchise tax liability.

The franchise tax rate is $2.50 per $1,000 of Mississippi capital.
