Last year, Microsoft reported making a record profit of $23 billion on $70 billion in sales.  Had Microsoft paid their fair share of State taxes, they would have paid 1.5 Percent times $70 billion – or one billion dollars in State taxes. This still would have left Microsoft a record profit of $22 billion – and they could have deducted the one billion in State taxes from their federal taxes. Instead, despite $23 billion in record profits, Microsoft paid next to nothing in State taxes!

Tax Breaks for Wealthy Multinational Corporations Do Not Create Jobs…Just the opposite, they cost jobs!
