(CNN) – This meal deal doesn't come with fries, but it could come with a massive tax incentive for Burger King, because the chain is now reportedly in talks to buy Tim Hortons, the Canadian doughnut and coffee chain.
If the deal goes though, it would create the world's third largest fast food chain, generating $22 billion in sales at more than 18,000 restaurants in 100 countries.
But it would also mean Burger King could take a big bite out of its taxes by moving their base from Miami, to the great white north, and merging with a foreign company, a move economists call "inversion."
Fortune's Dan Primack joins CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" to discuss.
