Effective Tax Rate

Effective Tax Rate

The effective tax rate is a company’s tax expense divided by pre-tax earnings. This rate is generally different to the statutory tax rate due to differences in accounting and tax treatment of some of the items of income and expenses. For individuals, the effective tax rate is the total tax divided by their earned income. It takes into account any deductions to which they are entitled and the different tax brackets.
