There is some mention about taxes. Plus, Google is a public company - their finances are not secret. According to this article, they do pay tax but the rate is very low:
While many multinationals use similar structures, Google has managed to lower its overseas tax rate more than its peers in the technology sector. Its rate since 2007 has been 2.4 percent.
I'd also observe that Google did not create the tax codes, US or international. They just use them very intelligently.
