    If you don't want corporations being seen as people then it would be advisable to stop taxing them as if they are capable of paying taxes.

    A point.

    It seems likely that no corporation has ever paid any taxes.








    Without passing the cost on to their customers, anyway.

    They would still not have anything left for the rest of the month. They better hope they don't need anything else, like milk, eggs, etc. that doesn't last that long.

    A business is capable of paying bill's, so it is capable of paying business taxes. That is what the business's accountants are for

    Those are income taxes, not person taxes. Businesses make income, profit, use the infrastructure, rely on emergency services to protect the assets of businesses, and more. Hence businesses should pay taxes.

    Actually, it can't. The only entity that can pay taxes are people. Nothing else has the capability to pull it off. Once you start treating something as a person you shouldn't be surprised that are in turn seen as one.

    People make incomes. A business is incapable of earning or making an income.

    Whats just a little more funny than watching the herd of handout clowns stealing shopping baskets full of food is the people that rush into here and a-defend them and b-blame it on Walmart.
    WHat was that saying? When Black people grab stuff after a disaster, they are called looters. But, when white folks do it, they call them survivalists.

    Clearly you're not an accountant. Enough said.

    For a business (or corporation, same thing in a general way), taxes are just another bill. Granted a bit more complex and requiring unreasonable amounts of calculation, but still a bill.

    How do businesses pay bills?
