As of late, many U.S. firms have made their way overseas in ways many feel are unethical. U.S. multinationals have taken note of the unimaginable domestic corporate income tax rate the United States has set for these U.S. corporations. Similar to an individual paycheck you may receive, you must pay a portion to the U.S. government in taxes. And even more similarly, you wish that you did not have to pay it either. U.S. multinationals have the same mindset, as they have found ways to avoid the corporate income tax through foreign activity strategies. Using scholarly research papers and well-renown media coverage, I was able to discover the methods used to avoid the 35% corporate income companies must pay on U.S. sourced income. Several sources have mentioned similar results about the techniques used to avoid taxes, which makes me believe that the results I have found in my paper are valid and trustworthy.
