They say that only certain things in life are death and taxes. General Motors already escaped one of the two, and now it's getting a big break on the other – as part of GM's restructuring plan, it's eligible for up to $45 billion in tax breaks. Under the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), General Motors can utilizes its pre-bankruptcy losses to offset future tax liabilities. This should provide a large dose of financial help for the automaker, as it goes forward with its IPO and works to pay back the US and Canadian tax-paying public.
