I do believe that they are using a tax loophole to avoid paying their fair share. Those racists and tax dodgers!

At least tax policy does influence peoples’ decision making.

The "cliff" that Obama, Democrats and Republicans negotiated last year? That "cliff"? The one that was supposed to ensure Obama would become fiscally responsible? The one the GOP declared was a major victory for our side? The one I said was a disaster and would come back to bite us hard?

That "cliff"?


Oh... that one.... my bad.

Guess what? 23.4% of the Washington Post is owned by none other than Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway.

He'll just send the IRS a check for the difference between next year's tax rate and this year's. Right? Right??

No, actually the dividend cliff (as pertains to this story).

The non-extension of Bush tax cuts one.

If the WASHPOST has an office in NYC, will they be made to pay NY income taxes on ALL their earnings??

Since NYC is going after people who own a house or apartment that way, even if they never live in them.

Post at Free Republic are usually only seen by the choir, why not preach to the heathen by comment at the actual Yahoo article?

My comments: "Butttt….why is the arch liberal Washington Post dodging taxes by using an evil Bush tax loophole???? They’re stealing bread from the mouths of children and widows."

The dividends come not from the Washington Post newspapers, which is a $ loser, but from its highly profitabe Kaplan education services entity. That is made profitable by all the yuppies who seek to have their kiddos score ever higher on the SATs.

Washington Rats know that Obama’s policies stink.

That’s why they call it the Washington Compost, the perfect home for leftist rats.
