The Internal Revenue Service today announced that interest rates will remain the same for the calendar quarter beginning April 1, 2012. The rates will be:
- three (3) percent for overpayments (two (2) percent in the case of a corporation);
- three (3) percent for underpayments;
- five (5) percent for large corporate underpayments; and
- one-half (0.5) percent for the portion of a corporate overpayment exceeding $10,000.
With the record low interest rates in the market, it would be nice if some of the States also brought their interest rates into line with everyone else. For example, Arkansas has always charged 10%. As you can see in this chart from the TaxInterest program, some states even charge much more than that.
