Earlier this year, Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett made headlines by
publicly decrying the stark inequity between his own effective federal tax rate (about
17 percent, by his estimate) and that of his secretary (about 30 percent). The resulting
media firestorm has drawn welcome attention to unfair tax breaks that allow the richest
Americans to avoid paying their fair share of the personal income tax. But these inequities are not limited to the personal tax.
Our corporate tax system is plagued by very similar problems, problems that allow many of America’s most profitable corporations to pay little or nothing in federal income taxes.
This study takes a hard look at the federal income taxes paid or not paid by 280 of
America’s largest and most profitable corporations in 2008, 2009 and 2010. The companies in our report are all from Fortune’s annual list of America’s 500 largest corporations, and all of them were profitable in each of the three years analyzed. Over the three years, the 280 companies in our survey reported total pretax U.S. profits of $1.4 trillion.
You think you are angry now? Wait until you read this.

IT IS A BIG SCAM !!!!!!!!!!!
You should stop paying Federal tax all together 100% of the Federal Income tax collected is used to pay off the interest collected by the Federal Reserve, on the loans they are giving to the government. This is fact that has been proved by the Grace Committee 25 years ago. Link
The committee concluded that 2 thirds of the federal tax is not collected and the third that does is not used to build roads clinics or schools at all. These funds are used to pay off government debt interest to the Banking Cartel.IT IS A BIG SCAM !!!!!!!!!!!
