price and loan interest income. The major determinants of bank performance were capital,
liquidity and management. Corporate income tax showed an inverse relationship with financial
performance. The study was based on Equity Theory. It was found that commercial banks only
pay corporate income tax on their profits, not on their revenues. If a bank is just breaking even
and doesn't have any profit left, then corporate income tax is not paid.

Bank should employ the services of corporate income tax experts to aid in corporate income tax management and also should plan additional ways to increase its profitability.
