Bad, bad corporations

Forbes asked in 2010: "How did Bank of America not pay any taxes on $4.4 billion in income?" The answers are not for the layperson: tax-exempt income, low-income housing credits, losses on foreign subsidiaries, and TARP repayments, all processed through 115 foreign tax havens and transferred to financial statements that were, according to a Bloomberg report, "so delusional that they invite laughter."
