WASHINGTON – The U.S. Internal Revenue Service will credit corporate taxes paid to the Mexican government while the IRS undertakes a study of that nation’s new corporate tax law.

Mexico's flat tax, called the IETU tax, went into effect Jan. 1. According to the previously issued U.S. IRS Notice 2008-3, the agency has not determined whether the IETU is qualified as an income tax under Article 24(1) of the US-Mexico Tax Treaty and is thus creditable. The agency is studying the new tax to make a determination. 

The U.S. is Mexico's largest trading partner, buying about 80% of all exports.

Agreements are in place with the U.K., Italy, India, South Africa and the Bahamas on the new tax law.


Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
