Apple is moving the majority of its overseas money back to America, according to a report by The New York Times.

Taking advantage of lower taxes abroad, Apple, like a lot of other multi-billion dollar companies, has kept a large amount of money overseas — around $252 billion according to 2017 estimates.

Now, however, Apple has decided to move most of those funds back to the U.S., taking advantage of a new tax cut recently passed in Congress.

At a rate of 15.5 percent, Apple will pay a one time tax of $38 billion. To put this into perspective, under the regular tax rate of 35 percent, Apple would owe an estimate estimated $88 billion, so this deal is saving the company an insane $50 billion

The Cupertino-based company has announced it will use that money to build a new campus in an unannounced location that will create around 20,000 new jobs.

President Trump saw this as a big win for himself and his tax cut, which is a $1.5 trillion cut that mostly benefits large corporations and the wealthy. However, it’s not clear whether Apple's new campus plans are based entirely on the tax cut.
