1. Find out who their brokers are.
The one I worked for (so very long ago) routinely hid money for clients, family, and friends. Squeeze the brokers.

2. Change the IRS rules on Deductibility of Executive pay. IE Executive pay is can only reduce earning
up to the amount that the CO paid in taxes last year. We also need a Corporate AMT.
IF your sales are $1M or more and you taxes are not at least $150,000 your tax is $150,000.
