On territorial tax: don't call it LIFT, call it LIE

A nice little report from Citizens for Tax Justice in the U.S.:
A group of so far undisclosed corporations are forming a lobbying coalition called Let’s Invest for Tomorrow (LIFT) to press Congress to enact a “territorial” tax system. The coalition should be named Let’s Invest Elsewhere (LIE), because that’s exactly what American multinational corporations would be encouraged to do under a territorial tax system.
Very nice, and very apt. Read the rest here.

Endnote: A “territorial” tax system is a euphemism to describe a tax system that exempts offshore corporate profits from the U.S. corporate tax.
