Close This Unfair Tax Loophole - Petition

Business  (tags: tax, hedge fund, carried interest, unfair tax code, Tammy Baldwin )

- 1300 days ago -
Hedge fund and private equity fund managers use the carried interest tax break to classify their earnings as return on investment. They pay less than teachers, nurses, and firefighters. Must close this unfair loophole.

Why Hedge Funds Don’t Worry About Carried Interest Tax Rules

Carried interest is old hat. They're into Bermuda re-insurance now.

To replace the Cayman strategy, many top hedge fund managers have entered the business of reinsurance, using Bermuda-based reinsurance companies as a capital base for investment in their hedge funds.

This is just one of the many subterfuges in Donald Trump's con-job tax plan to make it seem as if he would crack down on tax loopholes. As an aside, his plan to eliminate the estate tax (which affects about 1/7 of one percent of Americans) would save his family $2 billion if he is as rich as he says he is.

Signed. Tax breaks bought and paid for by the wealthy, corporations and special interests. And people wonder why the rich get richer.

Done, thanks Dandelion.

Carried interest is a rigged game. The investors in the funds are the ones who take the risks. The managers get paid fees and a percentage of the gains - no losses. They are not entitled to the same tax rate as the investors since do not take the same risks.

Thanks Wayne, there is more than one way they have scammed the system and made it "legal" to do so. Even Trump admits he has done everything allowable he has broken no laws. Why so many people can't see through his slight of hand game is beyond me. Too many only "want" to hear some of what he is saying and not all of what he is saying.

Thanks to Sabine and the rest of my non American friends, grateful from the bottom of my heart.
