US UNCUT NYC
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 15, 2011
BANK OF AMERICA TO THANK ORDINARY NEW YORKERS FOR PAYING FEDERAL TAXES, SO THEY DON’T HAVE TO
Bank of America (“BoA”) is sending representatives to the main Post Office on tax day to warmly thank the ordinary New Yorkers (including members of the media) for helping to pay its taxes. Even as New York faces billions in budget cuts, Bank of America succeeded in paying zero dollars in federal income taxes for 2010.
Reps will be giving out a tangible (albeit tiny) token of BoA’s gratitude in the form of hard candies (i.e., “suckers”). We believe that it is the most we can do – and who could take issue with the gift’s appropriateness?
BoA representatives will also be available to explain to those who may be confused (and perhaps even mildly annoyed) when they learn that BoA received a $1.9 billion tax CREDIT on net profits of $4.4 billion. Tax advisors well versed in BoA’s world-class evasion techniques will be available to explain in great detail how one of America’s biggest banks managed to pay nothing while everyone else pays their fair share.
