  • No responses have been submitted.
  • I agree that in some cases coporations don't pay their fair share of taxes.

    There have been too many cases where corporations hold off-shore accounts to avoid paying higher taxes. Many of the world's wealthy do the same thing. Taking advantage of these types of loopholes shows that corporations will go to great lengths to avoid paying their share of taxes. The tax system is very complicated and at times seems to favor corporations and the wealthy but measures must be put in place to prevent entities or individuals from paying what they should by law.

  • Some of them get away with it.

  • No, corporations do not pay their fair share of taxes

    In general, corporations do not pay their fair share of taxes, as compared to individuals. There are many ways for corporations to avoid taxes such as setting up offices in overseas locations that provide tax shelters. In addition, corporations have access to powerful legal resources that create the best tax strategy.

  • No, very few corporations pay their fair share of taxes.

    Large corporations employ tax advisors to ensure they at least pay the legal amount of tax required by the government. However, many of these advisors are also experts in tax avoidance schemes and can easily find ways of minimizing tax bills for the company if that is what the owners wish.
