- AKASH CHOUGULE - Vice President of Americans for Prosperity | The centerpiece of the tax plan within the Inflation Reduction Act (IFR) is a 15% minimum tax on the income that big corporations report to their shareholders, a tax known as the minimum book tax.

The tax applies to companies reporting $1 billion in annual earnings. There's another $80-billion in the IFR to boost enforcement at the IRS.
