Send a letter to Sen. Bill Nelson today and ask him to keep fighting for tax fairness by making corporations pay what they owe on $2.1 trillion in profits stashed offshore.
Corporate lobbyists are working feverishly to make sure they pay as little as possible in taxes on the profits they’ve stashed in offshore tax havens. Sen. Bill Nelson has been a leader in working to close corporate tax loopholes, and we need his leadership again to make sure big business pays what they owe.
If we end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs and hide profits offshore, we can level the playing field for small businesses that create jobs in America. It’s about time big corporations played by the same rules as Main Street businesses.
These giant corporations need to pay what they owe on these offshore profits. That’s $600 billion in taxes, according to one estimate. But corporate lobbyists are working behind the scenes in Washington to make sure their tax bill is a small fraction of what they owe…unless we stand up to them.
If we close tax loopholes for corporations that ship jobs and hide profits offshore, we can raise billions of dollars to invest in America.
Imagine what we could do with the $600 billion giant corporations owe right now. Make college affordable and pay down crushing student debt. Rebuild crumbling roads and bridges. Research new medical cures. Invest in early learning and quality public education.
Big corporations should pay their fair share in taxes because that’s what you and I do every year.
Thanks for helping build an economy that works for everyone.
