Good Jobs Now marched in front of and inside DTE Energy headquarters on May 3, 2012 during the company's shareholders meeting. DTE posted a $720 million profit in 2011, but paid a negative 6% tax rate compared to the statutory federal tax rate of 35%. If this company was required to pay its fair share, DTE would owe Michigan taxpayers $16 million and Detroit $1.1 million; funding that could've went to a quality education for our schools, fixing our infrastructure, job creation and much more. Enough is enough!
Increased cigarette sales coupled by reduced production costs helped British American Tobacco Kenya to grow its pre-tax profit in 2014 by 11 percent to 6 point 09 billion shillings. The taxman also benefitted from the cigarette manufacturer's increased sales as bat's excise duty and value added tax payments went up to 15 point 4 billion shillings.

British American Tobacco has agreed the terms of a $49.4bn (£40bn) deal for control of US rival Reynolds, creating the largest listed tobacco firm. The UK company has been in talks with Reynolds for months about buying the 57.8% stake it does not already own. The merger would bring together some of the tobacco industry's best-known brands, including Lucky Strike, Rothmans, Dunhill and Camel cigarettes. A merger "creates a stronger, truly global tobacco" business, BAT said. BAT, a shareholder in Reynolds since 2004, said last year that the merger was "the logical progression in our relationship".

British American Tobacco has reached a deal to pay $49.4bn (£41bn) for the shares it does not already own in US rival Reynolds. The FTSE 100 firm, which makes Rothmans, Lucky Strike and Dunhill, said the takeover would give it greater access to emerging markets and the US while also boosting its presence in the growing e-cigarette sector. It had announced a $47bn cash and shares offer back in October for Reynolds - the second biggest player in the US with the Pall Mall and Camel brands in its stable - but that approach was rejected.

It already has a 42.2% stake in the US business having become ...
