"How Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, and other American billionaires have gamed the system."
"Thanks to a leak of Internal Revenue Service records to ProPublica, we know just how little some of the richest people in America have been paying in federal income tax. “In 2007, Jeff Bezos, then a multibillionaire and now the world’s richest man, did not pay a penny,” a report published by the investigative news organization, on Tuesday, begins. “He achieved the feat again in 2011. In 2018, Tesla founder Elon Musk, the second-richest person in the world, also paid no federal income taxes. Michael Bloomberg managed to do the same in recent years. Billionaire investor Carl Icahn did it twice. George Soros paid no federal income tax three years in a row.”
