IRS documents show Bezos, Musk and Buffett pay almost no taxes

Here's a good one. Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett and Elon Musk all walk into the IRS. But none of them, in various years, seem to have paid federal income taxes.
Or how about this one: The rich get richer ... because they don't always pay their fair share into the community chest.
This is US tax law. And now we have a map of how the wealthiest people exploit it thanks to a bombshell report from ProPublica, the investigative journalism nonprofit, which claims to have obtained years of tax returns for the wealthiest people in the country from an anonymous source. Read it here.
Its first report (it promises more to come) is on the richest of the rich, who in certain years claim losses that can wipe out their income tax bills. This should sound familiar; former President Donald Trump did the same thing.
But that doesn't mean it shouldn't be a scandal that Bezos, the richest person on Earth -- who has used his vast wealth to start a spaceship company that will take him into space, where he will also be the richest person -- has in multiple recent years told the federal government he owed no income taxes, according to ProPublica.
ProPublica also reports that Musk, the second wealthiest human on Earth, whose wealth has grown many billions in recent years and who also has a passion project space company, told the government he owed no income tax in 2018.

sprayingmycannon because we live in a capitalist society. Not jobs for everyone. What are they suppose to do? Oh, I know, they can rob u. And when they do u can cut there hand off like they did in India. They can just die in the street of hunger. That would be a nice sight. Where would be so be if no one used is business. How much money does one person need? What a dick

The damned taxes codes in America are only designed for taxing people that whom are working and earnings a salary for a living.The damned taxes codes are not designed taxing for the richest American that are already in wealths.That why those richest people have alot of stocks in their companies or corporations only.They’re only paying in taxes are deductions for theirs stocks earnings in stocks loses or in Capital Gain taxes.That why those wealthiest American are paying barely nothing in their taxes.

I wonder if every American stopped paying tax what really would the IRS do but worry not here in Kenya we have the damned KRA we pay through the itax system and you guessed it politicians and billionaires don't pay taxes and employees from KRA are not allowed to join unions and are required to sign a non disclosure form, contract don't recall. This means should anything shady happen, even whistleblowing on it is illegal even when it is reporting on large scale malpractice politicians have been reporting losses for companies they own for decades.

People forget that these rich men don’t actually have these billions, it’s their net worth and most of it is stocks and shares prices. For example, If I have Tesla shares of 10 million and the share worth increases to say 100million dollars, it doesn’t mean I have the 100 million, it’s just my worth. You can’t tax me on that because the shares worth might fall to 5million in just a day

One of the main reasons I voted for Biden is his tax promises and so far he's doing quite a good job with it. I just hope he can expand the IRS and dramatically change the US tax laws so loopholes get fixed. A monunmental hope but it's better than not doing anything about it. It's a disgrace that we have families living below poverty levels while we have billionaires hoarding wealth they couldn't spend in 2 lifetimes.

I paid $11,000 in taxes due from 2010 over 8 years. IRS got every penny of it. What you might think i did with that $11,000. I gifted it to my old relatives. I suck, i should have not done that. Gifting to non profit is tax deductible but gifting to older family members is not.

I LOVE CNN... But this $98 billion is not gross or earned income... if Bezos paid $1 billion, that actually seems semi-correct!!!! for the earned income. NO INCOME = NO TAXES. This is FAIR. THERE IS NO PARTISAN DIVIDE ON TAXING WEALTH. WEALTH TAX IS DEATH TAX and that is good enough. What is criminal is on your tax return to report millions or billions in INCOME but still near 0 taxes. That is illegal, fishy, unethical, tax loopholes, etc. That's what Trump does.

People also wouldn't complain so much about who pays what if they understood tax codes and laws like these individuals do. They pay people to help them find the best legal loopholes. Donations are tax deductible, certain business investments are tax deductible dependent on specific criteria.

the solution is not sexy and not good for sound bite. crush dynastic wealth. warren buffet is 100% correct. when children and grandchildren of billionaires inherit ungodly amounts of money they use their wealth in a way that often leads to the opposite of what makes usa great. anyone who tries to raise the bar making it harder for others to be a billionaire is evil and bad for society, think standard oil

btw, wealth tax is silly. also if u tax people on unrealized gains, again silly. do these 2 things and u will cause a great depression. u are journalists and i am an accountant so trust the “science”. the fix is simple but media and corrupt politicians controlled by these wealthy wont fix the problem, instead make problem worse to teach working class a lesson.

this is juicy !!! my money is on biden going after the leakers of info and not taxing the billionaires. biden says tax the rich and smoke and mirror tax raised for ordinary income only. I am all for keeping capital gains low but it can’t be half the rate of ordinary income. we need to lower ordinary income tax, top rate should be 29%. how is the sweat and blood of those building our country that much less valuable then an investor. Solution is very easy. soak the rich after they die via estate tax and limit how much they can put into a trust to pay zero tax - fav tax shelter of rich. the ultimate solution is a flat tax but that won’t happen cuz too much special interest money. i am an accountant so it would hurt me but i love my country and fellow citizens more than a few extra silver coins.

You are either pro-capitalism (in its current state) or pro-socialism/pseudo-socialism...whatever you wanna call a fair societal distribution of wealth. You cannot rile against socialism and in the same breath complain when filthy rich people don't pay tax LEGALLY under a "capitalist" system. You know...the 'grab it if you can' kinda system. You'd be delusional if you did. Like Eminem would say... yall too far from Bezos' radar to hear yall, by the time he replies, yall would have paid more tax than he has in the same time he took to reply. Just suck it up and carry on. Or change somat.
