GE Responds to David Cay Johnston

Tax Analysts GE responds to David Cay Johnston's April 6 Tax Notes column, Regressive Tax Inc., 131 Tax Notes 215 (Apr. 11, 2011), in this letter to the editor, 131 Tax Notes 527 (May 2, 2011):

David Cay Johnston's April 11 column ... made a tortured attempt to criticize GE, suggesting that GE paid no federal income taxes in 2010, and questioned the integrity of GE's tax compliance practices, referencing a 2008 story he wrote in Tax Notes International [Blame It on Rio: GE's Brazilian Headache (June 30, 2008, p. 1067)] concerning Brazilian sales tax incentives. We would like to clarify a few points.
