    SCHMIDT DEFENDS GOOGLES TAX AVOIDANCE STRATEGY, SAYS SHELTERING PROFITS IS PERFECTLY LEGAL via BGR

    Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt has a decent rejoinder to politicians upset that his company is sheltering profits in Bermuda shell companies: Under the rules governments have written, such behavior is perfectly legal. Per the Sydney Morning Herald, Schmidt this week said that he was very proud of the structure that we set up to keep his companys taxes as low as possible while adding that we did it based on the incentives that the governments offered us to operate. But while Googles behavior may be legal, there are still important questions about whether governments should put up with it.

    This mofo (Schmidt) has zero ethics. Stabs Steve Jobs in the back, stabs the goverment in the back... I like Android but the sooner they jettison this Judas the better.

    Honestly, main reason I posted this was because there have been a few people here and in the comment sections of various tech blogs that come down hard on Apple for doing the same thing, yet Google does it too and those same people are silent.

    Just my little experiment. I'd bet if I posted about how Apple dodges taxes, there would be way more comments.

    Hate for hates sake.

    Maybe I see things differently lol I have seen these stories all over but I really don't care. Its legit so I don't see why the hate on any of them. All companies are underhanded to me anyway

    I'm actually a little surprised and a bit disappointed to find out that Google has been doing this as well. I thought they'd be above something like this. But I guess they're a business first.

    Any idea how much Google actually paid in taxes? I know Apple paid less than 2%.
