    You're welcome...
    Loophole Definition | Investopedia

    Definition of 'Loophole'
    A technicality that allows a person or business to avoid the scope of a law or restriction without directly violating the law. Used often in discussions of taxes and their avoidance, loopholes provide ways for individuals and companies to remove income or assets from taxable situations into ones with lower taxes or none at all.

    Loopholes are most prevalent in complex business deals involving tax issues, political issues and legal statutes. They can be found within contract details, building codes, tax codes, among others.





    Investopedia explains 'Loophole'
    A person or company utilizing a loophole isn't considered to be breaking the law, but circumventing it in a way that was not intended by the regulators or legislators that put the law or restriction into place.

    No, there is no law which says the corps you are a shareholder of have to pay anyone dividends. IOW, there is no requirement for a corp to pay dividends, and in fact, many corps do not pay any dividends

    Estate tax is paid by the estate and tax-exempt to the beneficiary.

    Give me another example of the same exact pile of money taxed and then taxed again.
    Money is never taxed. Transactions are taxed

    No, dividends are taxed when received.

    You lied. You were caught in that lie. And now you go on the attack hoping nobody sees your error. Here is a clue for you - the longer you prolong this the worse it gets for you.

    Just admit you made it up and move on for heavens sake.

    I'm suggesting that rich politicians intend for these deductions to lower their tax rate, so it wasn't a technicality, it was by design.

    Only a wingnut would think that I made that definition when it clearly is linked to Investopedia

    a business that reinvests just so they don't show a profit is screwy. you only reinvest to increase/continue profits, not to avoid them.
