In One Chart: If Apple paid taxes on offshore assets, it’d cover most of the U.S. education budget

The amount of money stashed overseas by U.S. multinationals has exploded in recent years, doubling between 2008 and 2014 to more than $2 trillion.

For some perspective on the numbers, cost-estimating website HowMuch.net crunched the most recent data and created a telling interactive chart.

Topping the list: Apple AAPL, -0.12% and its massive $181.1 billion overseas stash, a $70 billion increase from the prior year. That total corresponds to $59.2 billion in deferred taxes, which is enough to cover more than two-thirds of the federal budget for education, training and employment, according to the 2014 numbers compiled by Citizens for Tax Justice last October.
