The Trump administration is reportedly considering gutting regulations designed to prevent corporations from shifting profits overseas to avoid U.S. taxes, a move Democratic lawmakers and progressives condemned as yet another effort by the White House to enrich large companies at the expense of workers.

"One of the Trump administration's top priorities has been making it as easy as possible for the wealthiest Americans and corporations to cheat and avoid taxes," Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement. "Rules preventing the offshoring of corporate profits should be strengthened—not weakened."

Bloomberg reported late Tuesday that the Treasury Department is taking aim at "regulations intended to prevent American firms from lowering their U.S. tax bills by shifting income to their offshore branches that they can loan to their domestic branches and deduct the interest off their Internal Revenue Service bills."

"The move could make it easier for companies to use accounting tactics to minimize their U.S. earnings and inflate their foreign profits, which are frequently taxed at rates lower than the current 21 percent domestic corporate levy," Bloomberg noted. "The existing regulations were aimed at stopping U.S. companies from moving their headquarters to a lower-tax country, known as a corporate inversions." (More)
