@PGunigantiAT Which the BK holding co. isn't... at least that's my understanding of why BRK gets taxed at 35%.

Aug 26, 2014

@PGunigantiAT because IRS dividend reductions are only offered for domestic dividends, and in this case the foreign tax credit doesn't apply

@PGunigantiAT holding cos don't pay taxes but dividends paid by them don't get foreign tax credit so taxed at full US rate 2/2

@PGunigantiAT believe it's going to be a canada-based holding co. w/ 2 operating subsidiaries. BRK is investing in the holdco 1/1

@PGunigantiAT Because its preferred is in a foreign holding company so it doesn't get foreign tax credit -- gets taxed as regular income.
