"The Yes Men have struck again. In a bid to throw more attention on corporate tax loopholes, the prankster group issued a fake press release Wednesday claiming General Electric plans to return a $3.2 billion tax refund to the U.S. Treasury Department on April 18. After the story was picked up by The Associated Press and other media outlets, Dierdre LaTour, senior director of external communications at GE, said it was based on a hoax. GE also reiterated it didn’t receive a tax refund." (04/13/11)
