    5 ENTS WORTH by Grant Nichols Its A Matter Of Opinion...

    Guest ColumnistInversion -by Bob Perry

    The term inversion is being used to describe companies that are merging with foreign companies and moving their cor-porate base overseas to use the legal means to avoid the high corporate taxes in the US. (The highest rate in the world and it is little wonder. ) One of the latest corpo-rations seeking an inversion is Walgreen Co. Known as Americas premier phar-macy, Walgreen Co. is potentially going to merge with a Swiss health and beauty retailer. The complete taxation legislation needs to be overhauled but the do little to nothing Congress and demagogue-in-chief are committed to do nothing apparently to keep arrows in the quiver when needed. With the elections coming up in Novem-ber more and more arrows will fl y with lit-tle to show in accomplishments. The cre-ating corporate headquarters in a different place than the major operations is in the DNA of Corporate America. As a matter of fact 1209 Orange Street in Wilming-ton is the legal address of at least 285,000 businesses. To name a few: Ford; Coca-Cola, General Motors; Wal-Mart; Google; JPMorgan Chase; Apple; Bank of Ameri-ca; American Airlines. Nearly half of all public corporations have fl ocked to Dela-ware where they have incorporated, all in an effort to skirt the tax laws. Interesting to note that there are more corporate enti-ties in Delaware than population! One ex-ample of avoiding Pennsylvania taxes was Bethlehem Steel whose headquarters was in Bethlehem while they were incorporat-ed in Delaware. But the increase in in-version is getting the focus and President

    Obama has stuck his foot in the conversa-tion by declaring we need economic pat-riotism and stating further I dont care if its legal, Its wrong. We already know Obama doesnt care if something is legal or not, but we do know that redistribution can only happen when everyone pays their fare share. Paying the lowest corporate taxes is part of all corpo-rations efforts to satisfy stock holders and maximize profi ts so as to expand. Patriot-ism has nothing to do with the almighty dollar and the needed effort to curb in-version is to create a favorable corporate taxation. Ever since we became a world economy, Washington has ignored the need for keeping businesses and jobs here in America. The best taxation for corpora-tions would possibly be no corporate taxa-tion whatsoever and a consumption tax be the source of income for the federal government. If this direction was com-pleted, manufacturing and re-patriotism of businesses would result in jobs galore and needed economic growth. World-wide competition world take on a new face and most of the inversion that has taken place would re-invert. Finding a solution and implementing it may well be too much to expect from Washington because the brightest and best are not there. We seem to be fl ooded with elected offi cials that think they know best and are determined to make you live by their knowing. Inversion will continue as long and un-til the tax incentives for corporations out-weigh the alternatives around the world.
