The income the corporation makes is taxed.
Dividends are then passed on to the stockholders.
When the stockholders receive their income it is taxed.
The stockholder isn't taxed twice -- only once on their income.

Get it?

--- is you who is wrong..

DUH!......for the simple libs....

the stockholders have invested THEIR Money in the company. Their money. There is no magic 'company money'. It is all the investors money.

They make a profit, and pay taxes on the profits. Taxes paid once. out of the profit on THEIR investment, they have paid taxes.

Now, out of those taxed profits, they get dividends.....which are taxed again.

They are taxed twice.

Magically you create 'company money' when none exists. It is all borrowed money from investors - bond holders and stockholders.
