Julian Castro on Corporations

 

 


Supported tax breaks to lure corporations

Castro's approach to job growth often involved corporate giveaways. A month after insurance company AllState announced it was opening up a bilingual customer information center in San Antonio, receiving $1.1 million from the state government, Castro backed and voted for an incentives package that gave the company a six-year, 65 percent tax abatement, a $30,000 grant for permitting and development fees, and nominated it to be able to receive a $1.25 million refund in sales and uses taxes.

Top earners & corporations must pay fair share

I think it's going to take asking wealthier individuals to pay their fair share. We've had basically the last forty years essentially of lower and lower commitment on people at the very top. Same thing goes for corporations. We have multinational corporations that are hardly paying anything in federal taxes. We need to ask them to pay their fair share. I think that we can consider different ways, different proposals, to be able to raise more revenue from, you know, the wealthiest corporations.
