Oracle, Google, and Amazon are just a few of the hundreds of large companies that have cut confidential deals with the IRS to help lower their tax bills, and critics want the agency to disclose the details of these complex pacts.

Noted. O.K. So, they want to keep it secret. So, we must share this article everywhere. Wish I could declare myself a corporation and get such a tax break!

Corporate welfare by any other name is still corporate welfare.

After Enron's scandal of mark-to-market "accounting", there should be no excuse for giving up the right to challenge companies' internal calculations.

The ignorance of those commenting on site is appalling. The spectacle of tax-attorney-as-bean-counter with no real grasp of how the system works is particularly scary.

It would be nice if Elizabeth Warren could clone herself in order to represent each of the 50 states.

Most companies in most states are allowed to withhold payroll taxes from employee pay but not turn into the states for up to 25 years! So employees are being docked pay for what the states rarely get for revenue.this is detailed in the book the fine print
