Democrats proposed lifting the corporate tax rate to help fund their climate and healthcare package, and if the tax remains part of the deal companies—specifically larger ones—could take a hit. 

The original proposal included a plan to raise revenue through a 15% minimum corporate tax rate. That could be modified, though higher taxes on companies is likely to remain a priority.

If the tax goes through, larger companies would bear the burden. The tax would apply to those that have averaged $1 billion of adjusted pretax profit in the past three years.
