Welcome to FreeBridge
FreeBridge is not just a financial services firm, it is an idea. In the 1930's, a landmark tax case was being heard by the US Supreme Court. Justice Louis Brandeis, remarked that two bridges crossed the Potomac; a toll bridge and a free bridge. He used this analogy to explain the useful social function of the individual taking the initiative and finding alternative solutions that both benefited themselves and society at large. This type of activity should not only be allowed; it should be commended. The tragedy in his words, was that so many did not know the free bridge exists.
I live in Alexandra, Virginia. Near the Supreme Court chambers is a toll bridge across the Potomac. When in a rush, I pay the dollar toll and get home early. However, I usually drive outside the downtown section of the city and cross the Potomac on a free bridge.
This free bridge was placed outside the Washington DC area to serve a useful social service, to help alleviate congestion during rush hour.
If I went over the toll bridge and through the barrier without paying the toll, I would be committing tax evasion.
If, however, I drive the extra mile to the free bridge outside the city, I am using a legitimate, logical, and suitable method of tax avoidance, and I am performing a good deed for society by doing so.
For my tax evasion, I should be punished; for my tax avoidance, I should be commended.
The tragedy of life today is that so few people know that the free bridge even exists. - Judge Louis Brandeis
