ANSWER #1 of 2

They're using loopholes to legally "evade" paying US income tax. Essentially, money is transferred between subsidiaries and ends up in places that have no income tax, giving Google a super low income tax rate.

However, the only problem with this exploit is that it's temporary. Companies are only allowed to do this until they decide they'll shuttle the money back into the US, and are therefore only postponing their taxes indefinitely. So, it sounds like it's not fair, and for the most part it's not, but they don't get to keep the money forever. In the end they'll pay the same as everyone else.
