Solomon: Corporate Inversions: A Symptom of Larger Tax System Problems

Tax Analysts Eric Solomon (Ernst & Young, Washington, D.C.), Corporate Inversions: A Symptom of Larger Tax System Problems 67 Tax Notes Int'l 1203 (Sept. 23, 2012):

The enactment of § 7874 in 2004 substantially curtailed inversion activity by U.S. corporations. Nevertheless, some U.S. corporations have inverted and other corporations have considered inverting, although recent temporary regulations have made avoiding the application of § 7874 more difficult. This article examines why U.S. corporations engage in inversions and continue to consider them. Inversion activity is a symptom of problems in the U.S. international tax system that need to be addressed.
