A New Yorker article about Amazon includes this statement:
- Most large tech firms avail themselves of similar opportunities — and Amazon, unlike Apple or Google, doesn’t transfer profits to foreign countries, thus avoiding taxes.
So Amazon does or doesn’t avoid taxes?
So many negative concepts in this one sentence — unlike, doesn’t, avoiding — even the New Yorker‘s traditional scattering of commas like birdseed doesn’t seem to sort out the meaning for us.
Just guessing here: Yeah, Amazon avoids taxes.
But maybe not by transfering profits to foreign countries.
Just a bunch of other ways.
Just guessing here.
