    Want to evade some taxes? Well, guess what, if you’re given a free HAI t-shirt, which has (a very limited amount) of value, it qualifies as a gift and therefore you don’t have to pay taxes on it! Then you can just go sell it and then bam, free money. (My lawyer asked me to include a message saying that this is not legal advice, is not true, and that you should never take advice, legal or otherwise, from me.) How do you get a free HAI t-shirt? Glad you asked. Just submit a topic suggestion for HAI here and then, if we use it, you’ll get that free t-shirt shipped to wherever you are:

    I live in Virginia and go to maryland for most summer vacations, near the Delaware border. There's almost no stores on the maryland side of the border, then as soon as you enter Delaware they're everywhere. Those corporations, with what little taxes they do pay to Delaware, enable them to charge no sales tax and other types of taxes so it's great for the people there too

    The other reason why Delaware is popular with companies is the Delaware Court of Chancery. In most states, if a company would want to sue another company it would have to do it in regular courts by regular judges. The Court of Chancery and its judges specialize in corporate law. If you were going solely on taxes, corporations would register in Nevada where taxes are slightly less than Delaware. But the corporations choose Delaware so they can use the Court of Chancery.
