For almost 30 years I have been calling public attention to an IRS legal offshore tax evasion scam (See some of the articles in this Blog) which affect the US taxpayer and US jobs.
It is the US workers who dig deep in their pockets to carry the burden of supporting our government and have lost their jobs to third world low salaries countries while multinational and US Corporations and the richest individuals do not.
Puerto Rico, a US Territory of US Citizens in the Caribbean has paid the highest price in this scam. They, along with our unscrupuous political leaders, have Puerto Rico classified as a foreign country for tax purposes. That last one is Law 22 which will allow US Billionaires to become residents of Puerto Rico and not pay taxes. There are already about 600 persons who have requested this special tax privilege and have qualified.
This tax evasion scheme has denied us, who are and live in Puerto Rico, from enjoying our basic political rights as US Citizens.
WE DO NOT HAVE REPRESENTATION IN CONGRESS OR CAN VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT.
Worse yet....it is the main reason for the economic problems in the US and Puerto Rico. Corporations and Billionaires with millions in petty cash to influence politicians, want you to believe that for a Nation to be prosperous you tax the poor and not the rich. Really?
