This topic “effect of corporate tax on the profitability of business organizations” reveals both the positive and negative ways in which tax payment has affected the profit structure of business organizations.
Meanwhile, it will do us good to briefly discuss the origin of corporate taxation in Nigeria.

Over one thousand (1000) companies were subjected to company’s income tax. In 1963, compared with only about three hundred and fifty (350) in 1960. Now, comparing these figures with the great number of corporate now in existence, presently, we have about three thousand companies, which
