I've always assumed that corporations don't pay taxes. Only people pay taxes. Any business, if it wants to stay in business, must recover all of its costs. Any tax is a cost of doing business and must be recovered from it's customers, or shareholders and workers get smaller dividends and bonuses.

If you pull on this thread you will eventually have to ask yourself, "So what?"
Is it better to have high taxes or lower taxes? Obviously, if the US has the highest business taxes in the world, you'd want to lower them to be globally competitive.
And whether customer or employees are paying it, you'd want it lower.
But some will look at this story and yearn for government control of business in the interest of "fairness."
We seem to be on the slope already.
