The liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is making Bank of America a target in a campaign over what it calls unfair tax policies.
Members of the group plan to rally outside the bank’s Charlotte headquarters today, the day federal income tax payments are due. It’s part of a national campaign aimed at other major corporations, including Google, Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs.
MoveOn says the companies are using loopholes in the tax code to avoid paying their fair share.
Liberal and progressive groups around the country have recently been drawing attention to the amount of taxes paid by corporations. They say it’s important at a time when state and federal governments are facing massive budget problems.
