DISC is a tax incentive for U.S. businesses involved in export activities. It is a shell entity created by a U.S. exporting corporation who forms the DISC and contractually agrees to pay it a commission on all the export sales. The profits made by the DISC are generally exempt from federal income tax because the profits are distributed to its shareholders who are taxed on the income as a dividend. The attorneys at the Cohen Law Group are ready and willing to explain the process to you in greater detail should you be interested in forming a DISC.
