Designed by Apple in California and Taxed Nowhere

The Apple Corporation’s ad campaign is happy to associate itself with our biggest and richest state.  But when it comes to paying taxes here –or anywhere, watch out.  “Apple has been a pioneer in tactics to avoid paying taxes to Uncle Sam,” says the N.Y. Times.  This has been going on for years.  And Apple dodges taxes in the U.K., too.  And en France.   Intangible-rich companies like Apple shift income to tax havens, and the big countries haven’t mustered the will to stop them.
