Coalition of small businesses urge Microsoft to end its offshore tax dodging

Hundreds of small business owners are urging Microsoft to end its practice of avoiding certain U.S. taxes by keeping much of its cash hoard overseas.

About a half-dozen members of Main Street Alliance, a network of state-based small-business coalitions, went to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond today to deliver an open letter signed by more than 200 local small business owners.

The letter urged Microsoft to “reverse course and join us in calling for an end [to] offshore tax dodging in order to make economy-boosting investments in the U.S.”
