The entire reason it happens is because people, not corporations, have been doing it forever. Where do you think the 1% parks their money? They shuffle it through shell corporations and "pay themselves" when they need the money. That way the 1% aren't "multibillionaires" on paper.Corporations started doing it, and realized they never have to pay their US HQ. Then other companies in the last few years realized they could buy a foreign company and get out of US taxes entirely.
