IRS increases interest rates for Q3

Under the Tax Code, the rate of interest is determined on a quarterly
basis. For taxpayers other than corporations, the overpayment and
underpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus three percentage
points.

Generally, in the case of a corporation, the underpayment rate is the
federal short-term rate plus three percentage points, and the
overpayment rate is the federal short-term rate plus two percentage
points. The rate for large corporate underpayments is the federal
short-term rate plus five percentage points. The rate on the portion
of a corporate overpayment of tax exceeding $10,000 for a taxable
period is the federal short-term rate plus one-half of a percentage
point.
