Exposing Corporate Tax Dodgers

  • Elise J. Bean


This chapter describes landmark Levin-led investigations into how major U.S. corporations used complex tax gimmicks and offshore tax havens to dodge payment of U.S. taxes. The case studies detail deceptive conduct by Apple, Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Microsoft, leading to billions of dollars in unpaid taxes. The chapter traces how those investigative findings inspired international outrage and sparked a variety of reforms to clamp down on multinational corporate profit-shifting.
