Many of America’s largest corporations shift a surprising portion of their profits overseas to avoid paying taxes. Even more surprisingly, that’s a legal thing to do.

  • For those curious: Cardi B taxes are ~36.8% of her income. I'm not saying she was intentionally inflating that to 40%, I only wanted to give a more precise amount to those who wondered whether that was true. I took that percentage from a public estimate of her getting 28mln in a year, then applied tax brackets and looked at the marginal ratio.

  • This is where he gets simplistic. There is a great argument for all corporations to behave like "Pass Through Entities" (like LLC and S-corporations) and never be charged a corporate profits tax. Let the profit flow straight through and tax the beneficiaries of that profit at the receiving end. Taxing the corporation itself makes no sense, until you deal with foreign holders.... There it becomes tricky, but much less a maze than it currently is.

  • Probably about to go bankrupt and afraid of the Feds investigating their dirty earnings. Out of all those billions on trillions of dollars most likely somebody got paid to off people secretly not known to anyone because some medical files stating death by natural causes. With that kind of money they would want to hide their money because they might find it addicting to be able to take people out of pictures on the fly. Plus their money could be counterfiet and they're just washing the money in a place they can gain value to their fake monies. Like giving someone a candy wrapper in Europe to turn it into the worth of gold. Blame the metric system. If over-seas they know it's dirty money, it doesn't matter, it'll go in the bank. But if the business is dirty on domestic soil and goes under investigation then their assets could be seized; even their accounts overseas. It's proof of laundering and treason. How is it possible that their is trillions of USD and there's still poor people? Monopolys love hoarding money, and now in the computer times they even enjoy hoarding fake money, just to scare people. Bah-hum-bug Scrooge old white dudes who could care less about ugly minorities, compared to their well privileged white skinned childrens. They loves the moneys. They avid restaurants because maybe they only know how to barbecue hotdogs and burgers. Digital counterfeit numbers could be flooding into honest businesses just by a swipe of a credit card, and a transfer from their offshore account with all that fake junk.

  • Just fuck off John, you pig. Oliver’s got his high payed attorney, Waxenberg to set up two revocable trusts - JO, named for John Oliver, and KNO, named for his wife Kate Norley Oliver - with Waxenberg as the trustee and his law firm serving as the trusts’ registered address. The trusts were then used to create a shell company called Hoagie’s Place LLC, named for Oliver’s beloved dog. Incidentally, Kate Norley Oliver’s New York voter registration shows she is a Democrat and lives in the penthouse in question. In 2015, Oliver and his wife used Hoagie’s Place to purchase a 39th floor penthouse in an Upper West Side building overlooking the Hudson River for $9.5 million. Property records show they put half down and took out a $4.75 million mortgage from J.P. Morgan. Neither Oliver nor his wife’s name appears on the mortgage, or any of the other property records discussed in this story. Hoagie’s Place is identified as the buyer in the mortgage, but its listed address is an office building in Encino, California that houses dozens of shell corporations and revocable trusts. The 40-story Aldyn “offers residents countless amenities right at their doorstep - the cornerstone being the 40,000 square foot La Palestra Athletic Club and Spa,” according to its website. “This prestigious facility includes a 75-foot indoor pool, hot tub, 38-foot rock climbing wall, basketball and squash courts, personal training, bowling alley and more!” The New York Times reported on the sale of the penthouse in 2015, saying it had four bedrooms and four and a half baths spread over 3,096 square feet of interior space. “It features Brazilian cherry hardwood floors throughout, a glass-walled corner great room and a terrace that provides panoramic views of the city skyline, the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge.” The story said that the seller was Andre Crawford-Brunt, the global head of equities trading for Deutsche Bank (who has since left the company), while “the buyer’s identity was shielded by the limited liability company Hoagie’s Place.” Oliver’s neighbors in the building include Jeff Enslin, a hedge fund manager who has worked for Caxton Associates. That fund was created by Bruce Kovner, the well-known right-wing donor whose friends include former Vice President Dick Cheney. Oliver benefits from New York’s property tax system, which offers huge advantages to residents of rich enclaves like the one where he lives. For example, even though Oliver paid $9.5 million for his penthouse, the city assessed its market value for tax purposes at just $1.3 million. However, only $515,000 of that amount was billable for property taxes. At a rate of 12.8 percent, Oliver normally would have paid $66,390. However, property tax records show that, thanks to Trump and Roy Cohn, Oliver gets the very generous 421-a tax break on the penthouse. Hence, his property’s billable value after the exemption plunged by over $300,000, and he owed just $27,343 for 2016. That comes out to a property tax rate of roughly 0.25 percent, which would make Ronald Reagan and Ayn Rand dance in their graves from happiness. The Observer sought comment from Oliver through Avalon Management, which represents him, but did not receive a reply to a phone message or email. One of the best things Trump has going for him is the clueless nature of his enemies, and their great distance from so many Americans. And that’s precisely why Trump’s charge that prominent journalists and celebrities are the “opposition party” resonates with so many of his supporters. Meanwhile, Oliver, a prominent member of the pampered class who argues for closing the wealth gap, turns out to have his nose as deeply in the tax trough as the Wall Street financiers and corporations he criticizes on his show.

  • I wonder if Cardi B will look back with embarrassment in the years to come on how she conducts herself and the example she sets to young girls who look up to her as an example of what a woman should be/act.... A foul mouth ho... Of course its not just her...not by a long shot. I've seen the young women of today acting quite differently than when i was a young man and the way todays young men talk to them/treat them. It seems that being a foul mouth ho is the new cool and being treated like one is cool as well. My god...where are we headed?? As to corporate tax loop holes and the rich helping themselves to as much as possible....well duh!!!
