Personal Holding Company

(redirected from Personal Holding Companies)

Personal Holding Company

A corporation in which five or fewer persons control at least half of the company's stock and in which at least 60% of the company's income is passive income from companies it owns. Because personal holding companies may be used by the persons who control them to avoid personal taxes, the U.S. tax system imposes a 15% tax on personal holding company profits in addition to corporate taxes.
