When It Comes to Taxes, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Have 1 Thing in Common | The Nation

“Both do share one thing, however, when it comes to tax havens: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have companies registered at the same address (also “shared” by 285,000 other companies) in Wilmington, Delaware.

In other words, they make use of the “Delaware loophole” that allows for the legal shifting of earnings from elsewhere in the country to the ultimate tax haven state in the US. Neither, as Rupert Neate of The Guardianhas written, has been willing to offer any explanation for this.

That’s the political beauty of loopholes: Closing one is different from eradicating an entire practice, but suffices as a promise.”
