Ryan Ellis (left) of the Americans for Tax Reform making the case for Ireland being a poster child for low corporate taxation.

Our corporate tax rates aren’t low.

The US tax rates are too high.

Or something.

A presentation in Dublin on international tax and Ireland by free market lobbyists Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) chaired by Eamon Delaney – urging Ireland to resist EU tax harmonisation, keep our 12.5 per cent (and usually a lot less) corporation tax rate.

Eamon writes:

The ATR philosophy is quite specific and for many even provocative : that companies are being over taxed generally, especially in the US, thus driving them overseas and creating phenomena like inversion and the double Irish and the Luxembourg situation….

Seems fair.
