Given the Choice, George Soros Opts, Ever So Gingerly, For Lower Taxes

 

Approximately $13.3 billion of Soros’s net worth is owed to tax avoidance or deferral, say some attorneys at Cravath to Bloomberg. His total federal/state/NYC tax liability on these monies is $6.7 billion, which is payable by 2017.

The article also contains this beauty from a Soros tax attorney:

“No person has a constitutional obligation to pay any more taxes than he is required to pay,” says James Sitrick, a tax attorney who represented Soros for decades.

Which must be a confusing sort of thought to someone whose office claims not to understand, for example, the distinction between policy approval of gay marriage and Constitutional compulsion of gay marriage.

    I read a story that he is behind funding “professional protestors” to stir the pot – outsiders that escalate the violence, both in Ferguson, Baltimore, even the Arab Spring – not sure if it is true – maybe just rumor mill – but maybe someone can dig and find out – if that’s how he is spending his money……?  As well as the old tricks of buying and selling very large portions of stock to manipulate the market – tanking the English economy was one of his specialties in the old days….. dodging taxes? Maybe that will sink him –

    “No person has a constitutional obligation to pay any more taxes than he is required to pay,” says James Sitrick, a tax attorney and soulless whore who is well-paid by Soros.  Sitrick also claimed that the sky is blue and we will all die one day, and he’s confident that the court will side with him on this once all the evidence is brought to light.
