    If it looks rotten, but it’s legal . . .
    maybe it’s time to look at the tax system itself ?

    FYI….Tax evasion is against the law Matt. Tax avoidance is what everybody should do. Unless, that is, if you are one of the lefties that post here about how taxes should be higher. In that case, they should overpay what they legally owe. Of course they don’t though.

    You think Apple’s accounting is interesting, try GE’s, they pay NO tax at all, in fact they’ve accumulated BILLIONS in tax credits by restructuring almost all transactions as finance deals.

    According to Peter Segal:

    Congress set the rules; Apple complied with the rules. Now Congress is complaining about Apple playing by the rules. There must be something in the water at the Capitol building that turns otherwise normal people into cretins.

    Apple owes it to their investors to maximize income and minimize expenses in any legal way possible.
    In other words they are “The Evil Rich.”

    You want to bring back that money? Stop charging 35% to repatriate the money.
    You want to bring back as much money as possible to the USA? FAIRTAX! www.fairtax.org

    Money laundering is money laundering, whether it’s done by organized crime, terrorists, or corporations.

    @Omnius

    Do you know the difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance?

    @Godfreydaniel

    You are correct, of course, but I don’t understand what that has to do with Apple.

    You have failed to give a reason why the FAIR TAX would not be far better than what we have now. Insults and blame the rich are not reasons.

    Money laundering is money laundering, ….
    true but how does that apply here? Apple made the money fair and square. they just do not want to be taxed at a 35% to bring the money back here to the USA for reinvestment. And why should they? Better to just keep it off our shores then to be taxed when you do not have to. It is not like they are only counting the losses here in the USA, getting tax credit but yet making profit elsewhere. They Paid 6 billion. So what was your point again? GE plays with the tax code as to get money back. GM got a pass as to NOT PAY taxes for ten years. Where is your out rage on that?

    Mitt also did not take tax write offs for their donated underwear like Biden and Mr. Clinton…
