Despite what Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny says, IRELAND IS A TAX HAVEN how else do you explain the following:

Company Income Tax Paid Rate
Apple €17bn €8m 0.05%
Google €9bn €22.2m 0.25%
Facebook €1bn €3.2m 0.33%

Meanwhile Irish tax payers pay over 50% income tax (income +USC) if earning above €33k. Not only is income tax being increased by stealth (reducing tax credits and increasing numbers paying taxes) but also new taxes are being introduced such as the property tax and water tax. What a sweet deal the big corporates have.
