U2 tax avoidance is not criminal
I wrote a letter to Sen. Ben Cardin about Bono and U2 that The Sun recently published. The Sun then published a letter published from The Edge of U2 in response to my letter. I want to take this opportunity to correct and clarify the use of the phrase "tax evasion" in my letter, both for The Edge and your readers' benefit. My intention is not to accuse either U2 or individual band members of criminal tax evasion. My clarification and correction is that I am saying that they aligned their business interests with avoiding paying taxes, not criminal evasion.
