    Potentially the biggest cut-out in history, but Elon Musk will give him a run for his money. This guy is a clown that signed on the dotted line from whatever connection he had in the GOV. All a con!

    I looked up Bezos salary. $81,000 per year for 15 years. Guy literally never paid ant actual income tax, only capital gains. There needs to be a limit on that...something like a lifetime cap at $40 mm (adjustable) and then everything thereafter taxed as income. That's more fair. I do not believe Companies should be taxed at all on income, but the current code allows for this, I also don't believe any individual should be taxed under $100k annually....and have no issue with a 40% - 45% income tax on anything over $10 mm/ yr on income. I'd even do a $50% tax on windfalls over $20mm.
    its crzy people making 35,000 pay more taxes than rich people that is why you can never bet the rich at anything

    [COLOR=rgba(2, 20, 31, 0.85)]As for Uncle Sam, the tax implications of Bezos’ gift depend on how it is structured. (Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.) If he hands off the money outright, Bezos could owe millions of dollars in gift taxes, says Harvey Dale, director of the National Center on Philanthropy and the Law. But if he instead simply sets aside $200 million and lets Andrés and Jones decide how to disburse it, he would instead earn an income tax deduction.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(2, 20, 31, 0.85)]“I’m guessing that Bezos did not hand off those funds,” Dale said.[/COLOR]

    You can be damn sure that he gave it to Jones' charity and that Bezos is taking the charitable deduction.
