Not paying taxes on money you haven't brought back to the country yet might not be tax-dodging, but it's a goddamn lie to then say you're paying zillions in taxes when you aren't paying any taxes.

How can you get a refund on taxes you haven't paid? Are you sure you got that right, subby?

Oh Corning..That's right down the road. Expect a headline next week about a Farker getting arrested for kicking a Corning executive in the nuts.

They still have to pay medicare and SS taxes for each of their employees. While those aren't income taxes on the company, they are still a tax. Progressives tend to forget that the company has to pay that for each employee and it has nothing to do with profit, but it has everything to do with where your employee is working. Overseas employees don't have that extra cost.

So while this company apparently paid less than zero on their income, they've paid plenty for their employees. Liberals don't consider this a "tax" when they write stories like this, which is bullshiat. It's lost money to the company for every employee they have on US soil.

Corning is going to turn around any day now and create 750,000 jobs with further tax considerations. Look at the track record since Bush signed papers that finally unencumbered large companies to invest here at home. Jobs are everywhere, as these companies promised. That's what happens when corporate America sits atop record profits, you moron. The rising tide floats all boats.

Jesus, its like you only get your news from your ultra-radical AP or Google News feed or something. Maybe you should be reading and watching something a little more fair and balanced, and you'll see the truth for once in your miserable life.

Well, let's just destroy the country then in hopes of moderately increased earnings reports that benefit the very few. Sounds like a plan. Oh wait, that IS your plan. The flag-waving, abortion rants, two-faced soldier worship, homoghey rants, and everything else is just the icing on the real ingredients of the cake. You assholes are going to sell this entire nation down river, all because you want to sneak an extra inch on us.

Keep pushing. Go ahead. See what happens. People are only distracted by TV and fast food for a finite period. And you folks are too self-important to apply the brakes even when the cliff is coming into view.

Well, you might have a point, excepting that what your talking about has nothing to do with what the SOB mentioned in TFA was talking about. To quote: "American manufacturers are at a distinct disadvantage to competitors headquartered in other countries. She wasn't talking about where they have people employed, she was talking about what nationality the company is.

I propose a simple change to the law for US companies. If you make the profit, you pay the taxes. Whether the profit came from selling a car in the US or selling it in Berlin, you pay the income tax on it.

The problem is that we hear this argument from conservatives when it comes to corporate taxes, yet when we talk about personal taxes, they seem to think that people who don't pay the income tax are somehow living on the tax free high-horse though they pay payroll tax, medicare taxes, sales taxes, social security taxes, and all the rest. Conservatives don't consider them "taxes" when they write their hit pieces on the poor, which are bullshiat, it's lost money to the poor for every bit of clothing they buy.

So having a 0% income tax rate is hunky dory as far as you're concerned because something, something social security?

That's pretty stupid.

While there are advantages to making taxes purely income-based, there are disadvantages as well. The big one being that if they just balance their reinvestment/employee compensation with their intake every year, something that's not exactly rocket science to do on paper, suddenly no one owes any taxes ever. The current system is somewhat more variable for a reason.

If you're just talking about taxing companies on the business they do/profits they make domestically, we already do that in theory. If these guys are moving accounts around to make US divisions unprofitable and branches in other nations profitable that's actually already borderline legal if not outright illegal.

The company usually pays a portion (up to 1/2 usually) of those as well. But then they can claim them as write offs against their profit, hence the refunds.

I wasn't proposing making corporate taxes purely income based. As it stands right now, it goes something like this:

If you make money, you have to give the IRS a taste.
Unless the money was made overseas, in which case you don't have to do anything until you move into the country.

My proposal was to just excise that second line from the tax code; if necessary with a hatchet and a flamethrower.

firefly212: The problem is that we hear this argument from conservatives when it comes to corporate taxes


I don't recall hearing this argument from conservatives. Not the ones in Washington calling themselves conservatives, anyway. They know (just as their leftist counterparts do) that actually scrapping the massively complicated tax/subsidy game going on now amounts to giving away a whole mess of their precious power, and they shan't be doing that.

So from the right and center we will go on hearing a lot of gibberish about breaks here or there, or targeted credits (to businesses that slide them the most cash) and closing loopholes (while opening ten new ones for each one that's closed), but not a peep about scrapping the whole mess. And from the left it's the usual gibberish about "making corporations pay their fair share" as if a business simply conjures its tax payments out of thin air or pays the bill by pulling massive stacks of fifties and hundreds out of Dick Cheney's colon.

That "fair share" comes from 1) employees, 2) investors (like, oh, the state pension funds that pay for unionized public employee retirements) and 3) consumers, who get hit with what is in effect a hidden sales tax on just about everything they purchase.

Individuals pay taxes.

This is an argument I've had and I used a very similar explanation as you use, firefly. All I got was pretty much, "derp!" in response. In fact, the small government minded person I was speaking with was insistant the government subsidise companys to keep them in the US. I asked how that would happen without rasing taxes. He couldn't come up with anything other than somethingsomething welfare queens.

The article centered on the following...

"American manufacturers are at a distinct disadvantage to competitors headquartered in other countries. Specifically, foreign manufacturers uniformly face a lower corporate tax rate than U.S. manufacturers..."

This welfare queen isn't compaining about a lack of equity in SS or Medicare payments (of which they only pay half and can use that as a deduction against income) she was complaining about CORPORATE TAX RATES.

Yes, I'm sure the Republicans in the House will get right on that.

Right after they vote to repeal the AHCA thirty more times.

And certainly the Republicans in the Senate wouldn't filibuster such a change in the tax code that would negatively affect the very people that are funneling hundreds of millions of dollars into PACS to get them re-elected. Never!

As almost every developed country also has some form of social security system in place, they have to pay that, too. Doesn't matter though, as far as the company is concerned, all this is part of the salary costs. (Company doesn't care if all the money goes to the employee or not.)
 
2012-07-22 09:02:05 AM  
I will agree that the company does pay taxes via payroll, etc. But if this person knew that actual tax status of her company then she did commit perjury by saying that they paid 35% on income taxes.

I might add that payroll taxes comes up to 6.2% of an employees wages assuming they less than $110,100. After that, nothing is paid. So I very much doubt that this will result in those "high" taxes that she was ranting about. You might mention those other taxes the corporations have to pay, but corporations in other countries also have to pay them and often at far higher rates then they do in the U.S.

Remember that the U.S. might have a high listed corporate income tax rate, but that is not what really counts. What counts is what they actually pay. And the U.S. companies, on average, pay smaller percent in actual taxation than they would in Europe. This is because while those countries have a smaller listed tax rate, they don't let companies write off nearly as much.

Klopfer: every developed country also has some form of social security system


Which is why companies have no desire to work in the first world. Eventually they will run out of poor countries to move their rape factories too, though.

If corporations are people, then why don't they have to pay taxes made on income from overseas like the rest of us humans if we happen to be an American expat?

Greedy sacks of shiat... fire up the guillotine again, boys. C'est l'heure!
