GM, 26 Other Big Companies Paid No Taxes

General Motors and United Continental are among the 27 U.S. major companies that reportedly paid no income-tax expenses in 2015—despite reporting pre-tax profits—based on USA Today’s analysis of data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The paper’s analysis didn’t include firms that lost money in 2015, because those would not need to pay taxes. Still, shares of the companies that profited and then paid no taxes are down about 11 percent on average over the past year.
