Are you ****ing serious? Carried interest for PE guys, transfer pricing, LPs, Swiss bank accounts (up until a few years ago), Cayman island crap like the thread I started.

Tax shelters are just as much a problem now as then. The problem is that the gop has consistently defanged enforcement agencies so the IRS goes after small fries instead of large tax cheats.
