NEW YORK, April 27 UPS chief executive
David Abney on Thursday said the 15 percent corporate tax rate
proposed by President Donald Trump would be "very very positive"
for the company.
"We heard this yesterday and so we're not prepared to
quantify what the advantage for us will be, but I can tell you
it would be very, very positive," Abney said on a conference
call with analysts.
“Were very encouraged by what we’re hearing," he added.
President Donald Trump unveiled a one-page plan on Wednesday
proposing deep U.S. tax cuts, including cutting to 15 percent
both the income tax rate paid by public corporations and that
paid by "pass-through" businesses, including partnerships, S
corporations and sole proprietorships.
