Corporate tax collections low

According to a recent report, two-thirds of companies that operate in Wisconsin do not pay income taxes. However, the findings could be misleading. If a parent company does not pay, but instead its subsidiaries cover those expenses, then is it fair to say that the company does not pay? I’m all for companies paying their fair share of the tax burden (on top of a number of other things they should take responsibility for). But I also believe fair, objective analysis must not mislead people, and that analysis must be just that: fair and objective. Further evaluation should be done, but only by an independent organization that has nothing to lose or gain from such a study.
