Alternate minimum tax part 2

The Republican tax bill repeals the alternate minimum tax on individuals. Wrong way to go. The Trump tax return that Rachel Maddow displayed on her TV show several months ago showed Trump paying 100+  millions of dollars in taxes that were required by the alternate minimum tax. Corporations on the other hand are not required to pay an alternate minimum tax. Thus by stashing its profits in Ireland, Apple avoids paying taxes in the US and pays very little in Ireland. I think that it time to charge firms like Apple taxes on their worldwide profits. If we must split those taxes with other counties, so be it. Still we must not allow large corporations to escape their responsibility to pay their fair share.

Trump must go
