All tax havens for the wealthy should be eliminated as Cayman Islands, Cyprus, etc. The wealthy have to file all taxes, and corporation taxes in US and pay what is owed to US gov't. These corporations and wealthy have gotten away with scamming the US gov't of money owed to the Treasury.Laws should be passed to eliminate these tax havens. GE, friend of Obama, paid no taxes to US gov't and there are many more that have escaped by hiding money in tax havens. Pass a law to eliminate tax havens.

You sound horribly jealous. Work hard and join them instead of trying to cut them down.

There are no laws preventing most of what people and corporations do to avoid taxes.
If they were illegal, don't you think the IRS would be on them like flies on dog poop?

No, these rules are in the IRS tax code BECAUSE the rich lobbied congress to MAKE them legal.

And THAT is why I support the Fair Tax.
It would make the USA the BIGGEST tax haven on the planet.

Even better, pass a law that every body has to tell the truth about their income, and never do anything crooked.

I’ve been very critical of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Most recently, I criticized the Paris-based bureaucracy for making the rather remarkable assertion that a value-added tax would boost growth and employment.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
