Fool. Commie fool. All hearsay. One from some conservative guy who alleges , yes alleges, that Berskshire has been shortchanging the IRS for years , but cites no proof, no evidence. Tax returns are sensitive and not to be divulged to the public unless there is outright fraud, so this person knows nothing I and everyone else knows.<quoted text>
He would rather PAY 'lawyers' big $$$ than turn it over as $$$ OWED!
Report: Buffett's Berkshire Owes $1 Billion In Back Taxes
Warren Buffett ---refuses--- to pay taxes he wants others to pay -
Richard McCarty, a researcher for Americans for Limited Government, said the company appears to have had a practice of short-changing the government for years.The company has been short-changing the tax collection agency for much of the past decade.
Mr. Buffetts company has not fully settled its tax bills from 2002-2009.
Yet he says hed happily pay more.
Except the IRS has apparently been asking him to pay more going on nine years.
When one considers the size of the company, the amount of taxes due could be in the tens of millions.
u r NOTHING
"useful idiot"[as ARE lots of others]
that lurks in America.
The information you supply here COMES FROM BERKSHIRE'S annual report, uninformed communist. The company has not avoided paying taxes, it is contesting its amount to be paid, legally and otherwise. Berkshire is not a multi-millon company, it's a multi-BILLION company that will always have contentious issues with taxes and other related monetary matters. I'm sure, as per all companies, that Berkshire employs every trick in the book to assure it pays as little taxes as possible, based on solid legal footings. Nothing illegal here and no apparent tax dodging.
When Buffett speaks about paying more income tax, he speaks about personal income tax, not corporate. And to respond that he should just pay more without legislation is puerile and stupid. If he loses this particular bout on taxes, let his company pay up, is all and NOT feel sorry for the rich bugger and his company.
All of this is too complex for the likes of you, Un-American Lady. Best stay out and stick to kindergarten stuff.
