Google and Taxes

Just came across this News story online. It says that Google Ireland Holdings paid nearly $50 billion in dividends to its US parent in the last two years and paid absolutely no taxes to the Irish Government on its immense profits. One would ask how they managed to do this? Google employs over 8,000 people in Ireland but that doesn’t justify not paying taxes. Why are they loopholes that allow for this level of tax avoidance or tax evasion really. Everyone is supposed to pay their fair share so as pay for services the Government is supposed to provide. We seem to be at the mercy of predatory US multinationals who don’t pay there fair share of taxes. To be honest I couldn’t manage to pay no taxes so how does Google ? Time to change the laws to stop this level of tax avoidance.
