Corporate Income Tax

 In Mississippi, corporate income is subject to a state income tax. This tax is levied in Section 27-7-5 of the Mississippi Code. Unless a company is taxable in another state, this tax is based on the company’s net taxable income.

Income tax for multi-state corporations is calculated by determining a Mississippi to total company ratio that is applied to the net business income for the corporation. For retailers, wholesalers, service providers, and many other business operations, income is apportioned based on a ratio of sales in Mississippi versus sales for the total entity. For manufacturers, income tax is apportioned using a three factored approach that consists of property, payroll, and sales in Mississippi related to everywhere.

After the apportioned net taxable income is calculated, additional non-business income attributable to Mississippi is added to the calculated amount to arrive at the Mississippi net taxable income.
Mississippi Income Tax rates are:

First $5,000 of taxable income        3%
Next $5,000 of taxable income        4%
Remaining taxable income              5%
