+ - Microsoft Freeloading in Washington State Courts->

Submitted by reifman
reifman (786887) writes "For tax purposes, Microsoft reports that it’s earned its estimated $143 billion in software licensing revenue in Nevada, where there is no licensing tax. However, for legal purposes, Microsoft relies on Washington law and its underfunded courts to defend its contracts as it did in Microsoft Licensing GP vs. TSR Silicon. Application of common legal doctrines such as nexus, the step doctrine and alter ego theory may lead to findings that Microsoft owes the state more than $1 billion in taxes, interest and penalties. Covered previously by Slashdot here."
