This week, Burger King announced it will buy Canadian coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons in an $11 billion deal that would create the world's third largest fast-food chain.

After the deal closes, the combined company would be headquartered in Canada.

This accomplishes a so-called "tax inversion", in which a company reincorporates in another country to lower its tax bill. (Canada's corporate tax rate is 15 percent compared to our 35 percent.)

Will you boycott Burger King because it's moving its HQ to Canada to save taxes?

Yes, it's unfair for companies to dodge U.S. taxes this way. No, it's unfair but I love Whoppers too much to boycott BK. No, U.S. corporate taxes are too high and I don't blame them. I eat at McDonald's
