The images of a mysterious meeting between Tim Cook and John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, have appeared on Boehner’s government website.
Unfortunately, the subject of the discussion is unknown – though MacRumors claims that Cook could have been lobbying for a tax holiday that would
allow Apple and other companies with large overseas tax holdings to bring back their earnings at a lower corporate tax rate.
Back in February, Fortune reported that Apple, Cisco, and a number of other companies were looking to “win a one-year tax amnesty on their foreign earnings,” which would allow the companies “to repatriate that money at a tax rate of about 5%, instead of the 35% they face now.”
Indeed, MacRumors could be right in this guess – though as of this moment, we don’t know for sure.
