10 Corporate Tax Dodgers You Should Know About

  • submit to reddit

Recently Bill spoke with Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, who argues that we must reform the tax code and stop subsidizing tax dodgers. A recent report by Americans for Tax Fairness suggests that corporate taxes are near a 60-year low — and that’s partially because corporations have become adept at not paying their share.

Here’s a list of 10 tax-dodging corporations excerpted from the Americans for Tax Fairness report.

Bank of America logoBank of America runs its business through more than 300 offshore tax-haven subsidiaries. It reported $17.2 billion in accumulated offshore profits in 2012. It would owe $4.3 billion in US taxes if these funds were brought back to the US.
 
Citi logoCitigroup had $42.6 billion in foreign profits parked offshore in 2012 on which it paid no US taxes. It reported that it would owe $11.5 billion if it brings these funds back to the US. A significant chunk is being held in tax-haven countries.
 
ExxonMobil had a three-year federal income tax rate of just 15 percent. This gave the company a tax subsidy worth $6.2 billion from 2010-2012. It had $43 billion in offshore profits at the end of 2012, on which it paid no US taxes.
 
Fedex logoFedEx made $6 billion over the last three years and didn’t pay a dime in federal income taxes, in part because the tax code subsidized its purchase of new planes. This gave FedEx a huge tax subsidy worth $2.1 billion.
 
GE LogoGeneral Electric received a tax subsidy of nearly $29 billion over the last 11 years. While dodging paying its fair share of federal income taxes, GE pocketed $21.8 billion in taxpayer-funded contracts from Uncle Sam between 2006 and 2012.
 
Honeywell logoHoneywell had profits of $5 billion from 2009 to 2012. Yet it paid only $50 million in federal income taxes for the period. Its tax rate was just 1 percent over the last four years. This gave it a huge tax subsidy worth $1.7 billion.
 
Merck logoMerck had profits of $13.6 billion and paid $2.5 billion in federal income taxes from 2009 to 2012. While dodging its fair share of federal income taxes, it pocketed $8.7 billion in taxpayer-funded contracts from Uncle Sam between 2006 and 2012.
 
Microsoft logoMicrosoft saved $4.5 billion in federal income taxes from 2009 to 2011 by transferring profits to a subsidiary in the tax haven of Puerto Rico. It had $60.8 billion in profits stashed offshore in 2012 on which it paid no US taxes.
 
Pfizer logoPfizer paid no US income taxes from 2010 to 2012 while earning $43 billion worldwide. It did this in part by performing accounting acrobatics to shift its US profits offshore. It received $2.2 billion in federal tax refunds.
 
Verizon logoVerizon made $19.3 billion in US pretax profits from 2008 to 2012, yet didn’t pay any federal income taxes during the period. Instead, it got $535 million in tax rebates. Verizon’s effective federal income tax rate was negative 2.8 percent from 2008 to 2012.

    This is possible only because we have a Congress that is totally ruled by lobbyists. It’s no surprise that non-millionaires arrive in Washington and at the end of their term go home as millionaires.

  • Joan Harris

    I don’t doubt the accuracy of this report and I understand that tax loopholes and offshore accounts play a role, but I also heard that the United States taxes corporations around 35% which is driving some corporations to move operations overseas where they pay no tax. Conservative thinking is that our country is responsible for this exodus and the remedy is to eliminate these taxes. It is a great divide. Is there any common ground here? How strange that some believe there is a tax burden on American corporations when they seem to be doing just fine dodging taxation.

    Tax treatment is NOT a subsidy.

  • http://MakingMoreOfToday.com Rob Hueniken

    There’s been a shift away from businesses contributing to their community and toward maximizing profit. So businesses don’t want to pay taxes. But unlike regular folks, businesses can get away with not paying taxes, so they do. Somehow we need to bring quality of life and shared responsibility back into business decisions, including by the company, employees and community.

    We vote them into office based upon our “tribal” affiliations and then we complain when they cheat and give our taxes that should go to educating our children, insuring we jobs for people and developing infrastructure and alternative energy to those that bribe them. Until we as individuals decide what we want for our children and grandchildren and not just for ourselves, this will only get worse until……….?

    Most of the problems, if not all, could be eliminated by limiting terms in congress so that senators and representatives have less time to do “damage by greed” and by setting a moratorium of 6 to 8 years before any legislator is allowed to work for any business or corporation that they pass legislation effecting. It is time to amend the Constitution by referendum and set limits on our elected officials, they certainly won’t do it themselves.

  • Anonymous

    The problem…Congress has to pass this legislation on itself. Do you really think this is going to happen. IN two decades or less a revolution…unfortunately.

  • Rod W

    If we, the ordinary people, demand in mass that our state legislatures call for a quorum of states to amend the Constitution it is achievable. The problem is the apathy and attention span of a public that puts possession of the newest gadget or their favorite teams rating a priority over what’s happening in our legislatures. The will must exist within the people effected to demand change, that’s the only way a true democracy works. We get what we allow.

    What they’re doing is perfectly legal. Why pay more taxes then you are obligated to pay? They’re smart for doing some tax planning. Push for a change in the law if you’re angry, but you can’t blame the company for putting their best foot forward for their shareholders.

    The solution is quite simple really; legislation takes an eternity, however, where Americans spend their money (what’s left after taxes that is) is up to each and every one of us; each and every day… Why should the American public be forced to endure this travesty? Ponder, if you will, the IMMEDIATE impact on the bottom lines of these (and other) corporate crooks. If 300,000,000+ Americans simply woke up tomorrow and decided to boycott corporations that pull this crap, surely the greedy CEO’s and their political cronies would get the message by years end! Since these corporations pay NO TAXES, perhaps the American people can ensure they make NO PROFITS by taking their business elsewhere! That sounds fair to me! This problem could be solved within less than one fiscal year; minus the lobbyists, secret deals, party politics, filibusters, bribes and outright criminal behaviors of the corporate powers that be!

    It’s a sign of the increasing concentration of wealth in the country. Once a Senator or Congressman gets some experience they help gerrymander their districts so re-election is assured. It strikes me that this is the struggle our founders wrestled with; are we going to be a country where the landed gentry rule, or are we going to rule ourselves as “yeoman” farmers. I’m particularly galled listening to the legislative branch, well everyone, because they act as though they’ve never read a history book, or studied our Revolution. They know this stuff but ignore it in the quest for power and riches. Example: remember the “intellectual moral debates” about whether waterboarding was torture? Everyone acted as though they really didn’t know. Well, we used it against Filipinos during their fight for freedom. President Teddy Roosevelt stated it was unfortunate we had to use such methods to get information. It was also used by domestic police departments up into 1940′s America.

    Sure, I agree, that’s the way it used to work. Not any longer, though. Corporations don’t care about sales anymore. Much of their income derives from the cyclic selling and re-buying and re-selling of their own stock. Sooner or later this system has to collapse on itself and they’ll require another bailout which will stick the U.S. taxpayer yet again! Corporatist entities are very good at NOT paying penalties.

    They are thieves. And congress is allowing them to do it by promoting and voting for the laws that ALEC writes for them. We are an ignorant nation to continue to let this happen. We need to find out who these companies are and quit doing business with them. I know I am going to. I have cc with Citi which I am going to switch over to a local, smaller onshore bank. These big corporations are doing America no favors. Originally tax breaks for corporations were given because they employed large numbers of Americans, who then paid taxes, but this is not the case anymore. Now they are just raping America and taking advantage of our system of inequity. This must stop or we will be drained and left with an even more weaken infrastructure and educational system.

    I tried to talk to my Conservative Republican sister about this once. Her response was that these corporations have every right to make profits however they can. I couldn’t get through to her. She’s always touting “buy American, buy American” and complaining about my 22 year old Toyota. She has a 3 yr old Navigator, which probably has many foreign parts. She refuses to see the inequity in our nation, that jobs are needed here to manufacture that stuff so we can “but American”. I have to just not talk politics with her. I love my sister and we agree on many political ideas, we meet in the middle, but on corporate profits, she rings true red.

    Yes, it is legal – but is it right? They aren’t merely deducting the cost of expanding their plants – they are shifting their profits to other places. Is it legal? Yes. Is is morally bankrupt to shift profits to other countries to avoid paying taxes in your own home country? Hell yes! And yes, it is underhanded to move their money around to dodge taxes. It’s not underhanded to write off capital improvements and other investments but to just move money around to avoid doing their civic duty to the country that they built their company in is despicable.

    Those large “banks” exist mostly as a way for them to launder drug money, hide money for wealthy individuals and things like that. They do not care about people who have assets under a million dollars. I’m not sure about laws but I bet they only take those people in for monetary benefits of offering them accounts because it would cost them far too much to maintain and deal with all those people who make up only a small portion of their account holdings.

  • MadMan

    Just use a credit union. They are local and by law when you put money in you become a share holder. There is not a fat rich guy setting in NYC taking a portion of your money. They do not offer much for interest right now either because of the way the FED has set current interest rates. The problem is the globalization of banking. If it got any worse you would see even smaller returns.

    The same tax dodgers that are indicated here is just a touch of the Iceberg. I know of a company that I’m sure everyone knows be it Home Depot, that sent their entire IT team over to India, and of course with it they not only cost lost jobs but created a way to keep money out of the hands of IRS. Supposedly companies that send jobs overseas do not receive a tax break (like IRS) a rule that was started awhile ago. If you call the main number for Home Depot, as well as most of the banks, you are talking with people overseas. The rule of no tax breaks should be upheld but apparently it is not. I’m one of the ones that lost my job because of this.
