Tax Law

NPR's Chris Arnold reports on a part of the tax law that allows some companies to avoid paying taxes by writing off their employee's stock options. Cisco Systems paid no federal income taxes for its latest fiscal year because of this break, and Microsoft and America OnLine use stock options to lower their taxes. Some tax experts are saying the law which allows this practice needs to be revamped.
