    Burger King to move to Canada to avoid taxes

    NYSE

    Burger King Worldwide Inc., up $5.29 to $32.40

    The burger chain is considering a tie-up with Canada's Tim Hortons in a maneuver that could lower its U.S. tax bill substantially.


    Time for a boycott ?

    Why not lower the tax rate ? The USA invented DTAs and now that they are working against them they want to change the rules .The UK has the same problem ... "Britannia waives the Rules " or did.

    We need to lower our corporate tax rate to be competitive or more companies will do the same. Maybe if some more do this, our government will wake up though I doubt it.

    I love the Canadian response - We can’t sell the national bathroom to an American company.

    I agree. And since we should think globally and act locally, a good place to start is by boycotting all businesses in the US that were founded by people who are part of families that fled their homeland to escape oppressive taxation and financial burdens in their native countries.
