Report: 26 U.S. Companies Not Paying Federal Income Tax

April 11, 2012

By SUSANNA KIM

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/report-26-us-c...

........Gardner said the issue is "not about corporations against individuals."

"For every company that shows up as a low-tax corporation, there are competitors that are paying close to 35 percent," Gardner said. "[The issue] is about a number of privileged companies that have found ways to game the system and have a tax advantage over their competitors."

"Over the past 10 years Wells Fargo has paid more than $33 billion in federal and state corporate income taxes, including nearly $4 billion for 2011," Eshet said. "The company's share of employment-related taxes, property taxes and other taxes amounted to an additional $2 billion during 2011. The years cited by the study were unusual for Wells Fargo, as results included significant losses as a consequence of its acquisition of Wachovia,[12/31/08] which when realized reduced Wells Fargo's taxable income."

Gardner said Wells Fargo's 2011 federal income tax payment of $3.35 billion is "entirely compatible" with what CTJ is pointing out.

"Our study is narrowly tailored to answer the question: do companies pay the 35 percent they say are too high?" he said. "The answer is clearly not."

U.S. Business Has High Tax Rates but Pays Less

By DAVID KOCIENIEWSKI
Published: May 2, 2011

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/03/business/ec...

The United States may soon wind up with a distinction that makes business leaders cringe — the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

But Nobody Pays That


But Nobody Pays That: G.E.’s Strategies Let It Avoid Taxes Altogether (March 25, 2011)

Topping out at 35 percent, America’s official corporate income tax rate trails that of only Japan, at 39.5 percent, which has said it plans to lower its rate. It is nearly triple Ireland’s and 10 percentage points higher than in Denmark, Austria or China. To help companies here stay competitive, many executives say, Congress should lower it.

But by taking advantage of myriad breaks and loopholes that other countries generally do not offer, United States corporations pay only slightly more on average than their counterparts in other industrial countries. And some American corporations use aggressive strategies to pay less — often far less — than their competitors abroad and at home. A Government Accountability Office study released in 2008 found that 55 percent of United States companies paid no federal income taxes during at least one year in a seven-year period it studied.

Rand Paul On Plagiarism Claims:'It Annoys The Hell Out Of Me'

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/06/rand...

The Huffington Post
By Sabrina Siddiqui
11/06/2013

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Rand Paul lashed out at the media Wednesday for its coverage of the plagiarism allegations that have rocked the Kentucky Republican over the last week.

A day after announcing plans to amend the approval process for speeches and op-eds under his name, Paul told National Review he was so frustrated with the negative press that he would have failed reporters if he were their journalism teacher.

"What makes me mad about the whole thing is that I believe there is a difference between errors of omission and errors of intention," Paul said in an interview with National Review's Robert Costa. "We aren’t perfect and we have made errors of omission, but we never intended to mislead anybody."

"I’m being criticized for not having proper attribution, and yet they are able to write stuff that if I were their journalism teacher in college, I would fail them," he added.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow revealed last week that Paul, a likely candidate for president in 2016, had lifted material from the Wikipedia page for the 1997 film "Gattaca" while stumping for former Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli. Buzzfeed reported the following day that Paul had also borrowed from the Wikipedia page of "Stand and Deliver" for a previous speech on immigration.

Paul initially rejected the plagiarism charges and likened them to "attacks coming from haters." He later said the claims were "insulting" and challenged his accusers to a duel if they kept up the reports.

Paul didn't apologize and pledge fixes until Tuesday, a day after Buzzfeed reported that an op-ed he wrote on drug sentencing for The Washington Times was copied nearly verbatim from an op-ed published by Dan Stewart in The Week.

The Washington Times announced later Tuesday that the newspaper and Paul had "mutually agreed" to end his weekly column.

The Kentucky senator told The New York Times he would begin adding footnotes and citations to his material so people would leave him "the hell alone."

Yet, citations and footnotes wouldn't necessarily resolve the issue, as it is still plagiarism when source material is lifted directly and isn't paraphrased, footnotes or not.

And the remorse didn't appear to last long, as Paul continued to play the victim in his comments to National Review Wednesday.

"It annoys the hell out of me," Paul said. "I feel like if I could just go to detention after school for a couple days, then everything would be okay. But do I have to be in detention for the rest of my career?"

One thing Paul neglected to mention for all his threats to school the journalists covering the plagiarism allegations: most teachers would fail their students for plagiarizing.

..........

Your opinion of Paul? BTW, we had a poster here known far and wide as Miss Piggy, the Plagiarizing Priness Piglet from Plainfield. She as even worse than Paul. She'd change a few words here and there and/or redo a phrase to keep ya' from googling it and outting her.

At any rate - your opinion of Ron Paul in general. Thanks.

Yes, I do support gay marriage. I didn't always, but I evolved.

What do you mean by taxing the rich to pay a fair share? Don't you think that is a function of what one means by fair and what the objective is? It seems nobody who is wealthy had the least bit of problem in gouging the working middle class and sucking them into the "Easy credit, no money down, take this home equity line and no problemo - we'll get you a mortgage, bubba" line of con, did they? Did anybody question whether the fees on administering your 401-K account or buying and selling stocks or getting into and out of a mutual fund MIGHT JUST BE EXORBITANT and unjustified? Oh, h*ll no. Any rules or regs along that line were left out of the legislation stuffing program entirely, huh? How about when your company went belly up stiffing all the shareholders while the key corporate executives still made out like bandits (which they were) and left the pink slipped employees pensionless as well as jobless? Did any law stop those a-holes from building mansions and leaving shareholders with NADA? Anybody go to jail for those infractions (well, aside from Mike Milken)?

Let's get you back into the skin that is actually comfortable for you as a thinking man. Why don't you just friggin' post as an individual who has at least HALF a brain - which you once displayed from time to time before you converted to this "thing" that's become a laughing stock. Don't even think about "Devil's advocate" excuses.

If you get it right, somebody will acknowledge that you did even if we also think you're the consummate great big old egotistical baby. Use your noodle, please.

Yeah. I know. I'm an old granny hag. I really don't care. I'm an old granny hag who still care about a lot of things we need to get fixed that require us all to find SOME common ground as just about the only way we can accomplish anything positive for American regulars.

The Real Father of Universal Healthcare

...

This is the inherent evil of universal healthcare. It gives Government the right to decide life and death for entire classes of society, as opposed to individuals contracting for their own healthcare.------This is why Hitler valued universal healthcare so highly that he imposed it on conquered countries, not exactly because he was so concerned for the well being of the subjected peoples, but because it gave him the right over entire classes of people to decide who lives and who dies.------ It gave him the power to engineer the composition of society to his own malicious requirements. Entire classes of people can be eliminated with no judicial process being necessary.

Michael Milken got away with murder, got to keep ill-gotten millions while serving a paltry 2 yrs out of a 10 my sentence.
White collar crime does pay!
Now he's worth billions while running his "Milken Family Foundation" out of Santa Monica Ca.

LMAO give us a break!
EVERY industrialized nation has universal healthcare except the US.
Your post is not only factually inaccurate, it is shameful to suggest a duly elected President is plotting to kill off classes of his own people.
EVEN a idiot would realize the fallacy of such a plan, seeing how he leaves office in 2017.
You really should leave the house sometime AL. Speak to REAL people. Get off the extreme right wing conspiracy nut blogs and see how the world really works.
You don't have to demonize his goals to disagree with how he gets there.

You are the laughing stock. You ask a question about what I think is fair, then you go on to answer it with a delusional spiel about loans and investments and lost jobs or contractually obligated payouts to those who were wise enough to get their employment benefits and severance package put down in writing. Your rant is all over the place. Aren't people supposed to read what they sign? Those lines of credit were put down in writing before anyone signed and nobody twisted anybodies arms to make them sign. Same with investments. If you are going to invest it is best to do some research before hand and understand that nothing in life is guaranteed.
And what does any of this have to do with freebies for the lazy? You sound like you are out of your socialist mind old lady. Have you gone batshit crazy?
