Corporate! Income! Tax!Officially, corporations in the U.S. are taxed at a rate of 35 percent. In reality, they pay a much, much lower rate. That's because the U.S. tax code is filled with deductions and exemptions (which, if you don't like them, you call loopholes). Politicians from both sides of the aisle like to propose the same kind of change: lower the corporate tax rate, and get rid of some of the loopholes. Last month, President Trump and Republicans in Congress released a plan to do just that. Today on the show, breakdown down that plan.




Bottom line (as. if. this. could. ever.) Surprise:
Going through a few detailed cases of ' loopholes' to be addressed, thence to wording elsewhere in The Plan: CORPORATE WILL PAY LESS TAX than now they pay, (with all the the current lawyering-up of such loopholes
(One Case mentioned as grew like Topsy --> damn near everyone chimed in re a category supposedly addressing ONE Case of "domestic production" [category name] whereby they put various candies in fancy boxes. as. in.
E Pluribus ---> Unum, in another area..

Seems that Every Single 'thing' which ANY/All Repos propose/dispose in a single session: contains as many Lies as in a 10 minute temper tantrum by the Toddler-in-Chief. Perfectly matched in scabrous motives, this pairing.
New Didn't hear it. But, was aware of the scam.
HuffPo: Boeing 2013 tax, but actually a refund!
Boeing reported an $82 million tax refund last year, but made $5.9 billion in U.S. pre-tax profits during the same period, the analysis of the company’s recent government filings found. That means Boeing paid a federal tax rate of -1.4 percent. At the same time, the company won 4.4 percent of all federal contracts last year, according to the report.

“Companies that live by the taxpayer purse should be contributing to the welfare of the states and paying their taxes,” said Scott Klinger, the author of the report. “The fact that we have major federal contractors that are consistently not doing that should raise questions for our legislators about how this could be.”

The company has a history of using loopholes to lower its tax bill, according to Matt Gardner, the executive director of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. The report found that Boeing paid a tax rate of -0.4 percent over the past five years.

“The fact that Boeing paid no income tax this year is not at all surprising because they have a very reliable track record of paying little or nothing in federal and income state tax,” Gardner said.
