Presentation to the Villanova School of Law Tax and Corporate Law Societies on Wednesday, October 26, 2013.
In May 2013 the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations held a hearing surrounding Apple Inc.’s international tax planning. As the first expert witness at the hearing, Prof. Harvey only had 10 minutes to summarize his thoughts on Apple’s tax planning.
Thus, he prepared this slide deck for a 90 minute presentation to the Tax and Corporate Law Societies of Villanova School of Law. The slides summarize (i) the results of Apple’s international tax planning, (ii) international tax planning basics, (iii) and various tax policy options.
