Re: Fwd: Re: [FSP] Free from MA!
- Tim, my response was framed in the context of Cindy's concern that
apartments were too expensive (and I agree -- they are too expensive!).
I was explaining why this was, and how certain policy decisions
(artificially raising wages) would not solve the problem, but make it
worse. That is all.

- MIKE: Depends on what sort of corporation you are talking about. Which government is registering the incorporation? Lets say you form a Delaware corporation but it does business in NH. Why should you pay NH corporate taxes when NH had nothing to do with your incorporation?
Bob: Probably shouldn't, and I don't believe they do now. They do pay federal corporate taxes, and I'm OK with that, in concept. Off the top of my head, I'd much prefer something far simpler, like a very low rate on revenues as a trade off for limited liability, but we've got enough fish to fry in NH. Put it far down the to do list.
