2 posts / 0 new

We've seen this story in previous years, so this is no surprise ... same s___, different year. The fact that some of these corporations actually received a refund makes it worse, though. This is more evidence that the loopholes in the tax code that allow this kind of behavior by corporations must be closed. That includes loopholes and lax regulations that allow multi-national corporations to move income and expenses and assets around the world among different branches and subsidiaries to minimize their net tax liability.
