'Tax shelter' nghĩa là mánh lới/thủ đoạn trốn thuế (a tax shelter is a legal method of minimizing or decreasing an investor's taxable income and, therefore, his or her tax liability. Tax shelters can range from investments or investment accounts that provide favorable tax treatment, to activities or transactions that lower taxable income).

Ví dụ
Last year, a court declared the tax shelter a tax “sham” — and now thousands of taxpayers and potentially billions of dollars across the country are caught in the crossfire.

Deutsche Bank must face claims by a Chicago physician that it aided a defunct law firm in promoting an illegal tax shelter which was marketed across the country over a decade ago, a federal judge has ruled.

Mr Cameron's family links to an offshore tax shelter have re-emerged just as the Prime Minister prepares to host and chair an anti-corruption summit of charities, non-governmental bodies and world leaders to encourage more tax transparency in London next month.
