The claim that US companies are hoarding $2.5 trillion overseas should not be taken lightly. This has grave effect on the economy given that the said money is from our economy. The tax man should give the companies a tax holiday of one year to repatriate the funds back to our economy.
Companies should not be given a one-time tax holiday in order to repatriate the vast sums of money held overseas. Although this wold allow the companies to return cash to the states, it is not fair to citizens that pay taxes. The corporations have an obligation to society, which involves paying their fair share of taxes.
Companies should not be given a tax holiday on money being "hoarded" overseas. These wealthy companies have avoided paying a fair share of taxes on these assets by keeping them overseas. They should not be given a tax break to repatriate the funds. Taxing this money that has been kept overseas can boost the United States economy during a time when corporate CEOs and businesses make so much more than the average American worker.
When Americans have funds stored in other countries, the countries and the people that run the countries want to stay at peace. Why would China want to destroy the United States if they've invested in our real estate. These other countries are happy to have the infiltration of case. It's a solid international peace strategy.
