The American soldier fighting for ExxonMobil who pay no taxes
Last week, Forbes magazine published what the top U.S. corporations paid in taxes last year.
“Most egregious,” Forbes notes, is General Electric, which “generated $10.3 billion in pretax income, but ended up owing nothing to Uncle Sam. In fact, it recorded a tax benefit of $1.1 billion.”
Big Oil giant Exxon Mobil, which last year reported a record $45.2 billion profit, paid the most taxes of any corporation, but none of it went to the IRS.
