An Island with No Income Tax

Why would someone like me stay on St Barts? Aside from the absolutely gorgeous scenery and perfect weather, it’s also a tax haven. I run some very lucrative internet sites that provide me with a very hefty income. It’s the type of income that the French government wants to get their hands on. I used to pay an enormous sum to the French government through my taxes. People in other parts of the world complain about taxes, but the French have them all beat. The taxes are practically ruinous to a businessman like myself. That’s why I sought relief in the Caribbean.

St Barts ended up being my destination. I can stay on the island for several months out of the year and that means my tax burden is dramatically lowered. I’m not alone as I know many of my fellow Europeans live on the island and they too save a lot of money. Some people think we aren’t paying our fair share, but if they wouldn’t say that for long if they had to pay the same amount.
