Pollack: Delaware: Tax Haven or Scapegoat?

Tax Analysys Logo (2013)Sheldon D. Pollack (University of Delaware, College of Business), Delaware: Tax Haven or Scapegoat?, 66 State Tax Notes 53 (Oct. 7, 2013):

So expect more stories about Delaware as an international tax haven and the perfect place to launder cash. But don’t believe everything you read — especially if I am cited in the article. It ain’t necessarily so.
