No, DailyKOS is where the lie originated yesterday. And here you are today posting it like a good little robot.

Forbes is a fairly reputable publication. I doubt they would take anything daily kos writes at face value.


My guess is that the discrepancy lies with some accounting issue that one would have to spend several years studying accounting to figure it out. But I believe that Exxon pays a tremendous amount of taxes, whether it qualifies as income tax or some other form, I don't know.

No, the DailyKOS version of the lie is they pay no taxes.

Apparently to get money back you have to be lazy, incompetent, and make some of the worst decisions you can.

My wife's coworkers include a lot of single mom's. She is filipina and not use to the american tax system, and cannot understand why every year, we have to pay a few bucks (I arrange it like that) while her coworkers get 3-4 thousand back due to earned income credit. I tried to explain it to her, but I think she just wants a reason to gripe about taxes.

Sounds like your ass should have went and talked to someone at ACORN while you had the chance.

Well...a part of the problem is that the States/Govt give huge tax incentives to get these business to operate here or there. This could also explain a lot of this math.

Its not technically paying income taxes if you get more back at the end of the year than you put in.

Throttle back there, Turbo.

Making a joke about ACORN, not so much you.

I understand why you are angry though. I would be too if I found out I had been paying for a bunch of poo everyone else was getting for free. No worries though, water under the bridge.
