Burger King: Don’t Try This Whopper of a Tax Dodge

To be delivered to Burger King Board of Directors

Petition Statement

Burger King benefits enormously from being an American company and should pay its fair share of taxes here in America. Don't even attempt this whopper tax dodge or we will boycott Burger King.
There are currently 94,249 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Burger King is an American company worth more than $9 billion dollars. They're in talks to buy Tim Hortons Inc, Canada's largest coffee-shop chain.

Burger King's sinister plan is to relocate their corporate headquarters to Ontario, Canada, thereby dodging their American taxes in a calculated move called "tax inversion."

Burger King's largest shareholder, a private equity firm called 3G Capital, will win and the American people will lose. Again. Unless we stop them.
