CRN Exclusive: HP's Whitman On Dell, Taxes And Windows 8

Are HP, Apple and their technology companies paying enough taxes here?

Well, my view is we are completely abiding by the letter of the law and we are paying enough in taxes. I think the broader question is: How does our tax rate compare to other countries? That is what we must [look at] as a country. We have to be competitive. So if the tax rate is 9 percent in Ireland and 7 percent in Singapore -- and I am not sure those are the exact numbers -- we as Americans need to consider that as we think about what a more consistent, simplified tax rate ought to be for companies.
