    Word order

    I'm not sure where "not" should go.

    "Does X intend not to have the income realized abroad taxed in Switzerland or to have it taxed only at a reduced rate?"

    "Does X intend to have the income realized abroad not taxed in Switzerland or to have it taxed only at a reduced rate?"

    The first sentence sounds more natural to me.

    Thanks!
