Rick Johnson – I agree that Illinois has to be more competitive, it’s just a fact ofRead More life. But is there an end to how far we should stoop? It is not just Illinois, but even the business friendly states that are losing out to foreign competition. And while red states are whipsawing blue states, all our states are being adversely affected. In 2013 according to Walgreen’s annual report, they paid about $134 million in state taxes which was about 2.2% of their earnings. What that does not reflect is the $6 million tax credit over a 10 year period nor does it reflect $625,000 in state incentives to train employees. Souce: http://redecatur.com/walgreens-to-renounce-u-s-citizenship/. But, I thought that the Illinois corporate tax rate was between 7% to 9%. In the US we previously argued which was better between red & blue states, and perhaps Walgreens would consider moving to Texas since their stated tax rate is 0% (Not really accurate since they have other ways of taxing corporations) but cheaper none the less. The nominal tax rate for the US is 35%, but corporations with a tax accounting department never actually pay that amount, and in fact many profitable corporations actually net rebates rather that actually paying taxes. I should clarify that those corporations that actually accrue a tax liability will defer the majority of if and therefore the cash actually transferred to the federal/state government is delayed for years. That amounts to an interest free loan in my opinion. But, individuals do not get to defer their taxes indefinitely like corporations. According to Walgreens 2013 annual report, their pre-tax earnings were $3,895 million and they paid $1,122 million (28.8%) but when one considers their tax deferral of $816 million their effective tax rate in 2013 was actually 7.9% As I understand, Switzerland’s nominal tax rate is 17%. I do not know if their effective tax rate is less than that. But I have to ask the questions. Are Illinois taxes really that high when one considers incentives and tax breaks? OK, so Texas’ state tax rate is lower and I understand the allure of moving to Texas, but Walgreens like many other corporations are no longer whipsawing U.S. states, they are saying to hell with all the states and denouncing their U.S. allegiance by exploiting the benefits of inversion. So are the red states taxes too high as well? Or is it the US tax rate that is too high. Again, I want to point out the difference between the nominal rate of 35% vs. Walgreens effective tax rate of 7.9%. Oh and another thing to consider, when corporations leave the burden falls on the individual tax payers. But, that burden is further compounded when those jobs like the ones in Deerfield IL are moved to Switzerland; there are less employed people in the pot to pay the deficits left by the inversion exploiters. I also read where Walgreens received $16.7 billion from Medicare & Medicaid in 2013. Should we maybe consider legislation to spend taxpayer dollars from Medicare & Medicaid to US based pharmacies? Or at least corporations that maintain their headquarters in the US. And I bet the savings that Walgreens realizes will still be spent on lobbying efforts to lessen the tax rate on the US operations that they still have to pay.

I am glad that Rabbi Moffic is teaching "the power of hearing multiple voices". If thereRead More is ever to be peace, it is every bit as important to hear of the experiences of Palestinians as those of our Jewish friends.
forest barbieri July 19, 2014 at 05:03 pm
I applaud the efforts of Rabbi Moffic as the children of Palestine and Israel have no quarrel onRead More equal terms, rather politics and adults propagate the hate and killing. Unfortunately, the current killing of so many innocent civilians and children will create another generation of what one side will say are terrorists and another say patriots avenging their child or relatives death. A vicious cycle that violence only enhances. When will the intelligent and forward thinkers of the Middle East come together to create a better future for all. Who is humble enough to find peace?
