    When I was in law school in the 1990s, I asked my professor why business owners deserved the legal benefits of incorporation (especially being shielded from the corporation’s debts). His answer was double-taxation: the owners pay for those benefits by being taxed on the business income both when the corporation receives it and again when the owners get paid from it. I think I’ll call that professor and ask him for a refund for his class.

    Correction; HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO BELIEVE that the unemployed are freeloaders.

    A guy on the radio who makes a million dollars a year for mansplaining conservative interests tells me what to be angry about.

    Amazon legally paid $0 in FEDERAL income taxes, they paid (in cash) taxes to state, local, and foreign governments. From their 2020 10-K:

    *Cash taxes paid, net of refunds, were $1.2 billion, $881 million, and $1.7 billion for 2018, 2019, and 2020.*

    Just so we have the facts correct.

    And this fucker gets to go to space next month with a space company that just received ten billion of our own tax dollars. I don’t know why there isn’t more outrage over this.

    In a statement to CNBC, an Amazon spokesperson said, “Amazon pays all the taxes we are required to pay in the U.S. and every country where we operate, including paying $2.6 billion in corporate tax and reporting $3.4 billion in tax expense over the last three years.” The statement also mentioned Amazon’s investment and job creation in the United States.

    Everyone keeps confusing worth and income.

    I don’t understand why people are mad at Bezos and Amazon for not paying taxes. They should be mad at the government and lawmakers who allow them to do this. If I owned a multibillion dollar company and could legally be exempt from paying taxes then I would do the exact same thing.

    – [Amazon paid 9% tax rate in 2020](https://www.bbc.com/news/business-56657596)

    So this throws into doubt the validity of the remainder of the unsourced statements in this screenshot of a tweet.

    ITT: people who do not understand what net worth means

  18. onedoesnotsimplyfini says

    This might be a question for a different subreddit, but is this a gotcha for most conservatives, or would they respond that both Jeff Bezos and the unemployed are “freeloaders”, so there’s no contradiction?

    “And people think worker if getting 300/week…”

    Should say “and REPUBLICANS*” let’s not get it twisted

    And now he’s gunna leave the earth and take all the jobs and give them to the aliens. Thay tooook er jerrrbss!!!

  21. Victorystar0 says

    That’s because only realized gains are taxed, so if a company doesn’t take any cash out they don’t pay taxes. They simple reallocate cash to different assets so they never have realized gains.

    Why do all continue to shop at Amazon? I know this isn’t really the intent of the post. It is about taxation. Just have to throw out this aside to express how much everyone should resist Amazon. Put down the mouse and shop locally before all of the brick and mortars stores close.

  23. bignose703 says

    Amazon is nothing without roads, rails, and the National airspace system, all things paid for with taxes, that they don’t pay.

    So who is providing the pitchfork and who is leading?

  28. DunningKrugerOnElmSt says

    But, but, their wealth is not realized so they can’t pay more in taxes/s
    If this is unironically your position, you have been duped.

    CN anyone direct me to consessions. I need a drink and some snack for all this good drama I’m watching. No but for real in all honesty. I can’t really see how some of you think this is ok from any perspective ( but to each their own ) money fucking sucks and were all slaves to it. We’re numbers on whiteboards to our government.

    I can’t wait for the next post of tweets the sub already broadly agrees with.

  31. Vaeon says

    “People”…that’s a cute euphemism for “Democratically elected representatives of the nation”.

  32. ZeeeeBro says

    I can almost guarantee you both him and Amazon paid taxes.

  34. ghsteo says

    This is so fucked, meanwhile Politicans try to remove social safety nets under the pretense that it’s wasted money or we can’t afford it while also giving more fucking tax breaks to the rich. I don’t know how much longer this is going to last, there’s no way this is not going to bust.
