    G.E. is right that it’s a tax on income. You are not paying taxes on previous earnings just new ones. It’s fair to say that it’s double taxed in the sense that the corporation has already paid taxes on the income, but it’s not a triple tax like you feel like it is. Double taxes are not necessarily bad. We need a tax code that encourages investment but curtails spending beyond your means.
