Cool interactive visualization that allows you to see how much various companies are paying in corporate taxes. You can hover over a circle to see what: each firm pays in taxes versus their total revenue &  profits, plus the tax rate.

Or, break it down by industry, with a very cool animation showing the sector breakdown. Nice search function, too

Very neat.

 

Look at these firms also:

Carnival 1%
Ford 3%
Pepco: 3%
Amazon 6%
Boeing 7%
Valero 8%
Verizon 9%
Apple 14%
IBM 15%
Google 17%

Apple at 14% almost looks reasonable!
