re: Synopsys' profit doubles on IRS settlement

For the record, I reached out to Synopsys to get more info about the tax settlement. The settlement covers a dispute about IRS audits of the company for fiscal years 2006 to 2009. It's not a payment the government made to Synopsys, but a reduction in the company's tax liability which boosted its bottom line.

That cool when you can make more on your tax return than on you business. Seems like a bad time for the government to be giving back tax dollars.
