Bank of America Taxes Protest

Activists Gather to Protest Big Firms on Dodging Taxes Claim

We moan and groan about the huge chunk of money that Uncle Sam takes out of our paycheck, so it's only fair that corporations should experience the same alongside us, right? Turns out, some activists are saying that these companies aren't paying a fair amount of taxes. Yesterday, there were a large number of protests held around the country, mostly organized by MoveOn.org, to speak out against this grievance.

Dozens of protestors showed up at Bank of America's branch in Connecticut, claiming that BofA did not pay any federal taxes in 2010 because of offshore tax havens. In response, a BofA spokesperson said, "Income tax is based on income, and in 2010 we reported a loss. However, we still paid more than $2 billion in state and local taxes, payroll taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, and other taxes."
