* Texas corporate income tax reported is actually referred to by the state as a franchise tax. This tax identifies the lower bound amount for the Texas franchise tax. Otherwise, the Texas franchise ($2.50 per $1,000 of capital) is double the rate found in Oklahoma ($1.25 per $1,000 of capital up to a maximum of $20,000) without any cap.
