What Companies Pay in Taxes
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An exposé on how the government has allowed American corporations to avoid paying taxes and the growing wave of discontent that it has fostered.

Another reviewer said this film is too one-sided, and I am afraid I have to agree with them. While I am on the same side of the political fence as the people who made this, I am unclear if the truth was told... and to me, a documentary should tell the truth. We do not need rhetoric, like corporations paying their "fair share". Is there a good reason they pay 0%?

This did teach me some interesting things, though, such as about Ugland House. I have heard of the Cayman Islands and about how it is a tax shelter. I was not aware that so many of these businesses utilized the very same location. That just makes it seem even more of a scam.
