To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to decrease the top marginal corporate rate to 28 percent and to prevent corporations from exploiting tax treaties to evade taxation of United States income.


Fair American Corporate Tax Act or FACT Act - Amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) decrease from 35% to 28% the top marginal income tax rate for corporations (including personal service corporations); and (2) provide that the amount of any tax withholding for deductible payments made by a U.S. subsidiary of a foreign parent corporation to a related subsidiary in any country that has a tax treaty with the United States shall not be less than the amount which would be imposed if the payment were made directly to the foreign parent corporation.
