Taxes taxes taxes… with a twist

Happy tax day! You ready for this?  I have posted here a chart that details information released by Senator Bernie Sanders about the top 10 corporations who are worst at paying taxes.

With businesses like these laying people off and moving their business overseas, it makes you wonder the value of these tax incentives. We all take advantage of deductions, but this corporate behavior calls into question how ethical and legitimate their actions are.

Just doesn’t seem very… nice.

Rather than go on about my own perspective (which I’ve developed with lots of news and informative podcast listening!), I urge you all to inform your opinions with lots of reading and listening. PBS News seems to offer insights on both sides of the issue, but I’m sure there are many other reliable sources out there.

Happy reading/opinion-forming,
Jen
