Written by miebaka ikiriko on June 9, 2021
Reports say details claiming to reveal how little income tax United States billionaires pay have been leaked to a news website.
The Website Propublica says it has seen the tax returns of some of the world’s richest people, including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Warren Buffett.
The website alleges Amazon’s Mr Bezos paid no tax in 2007 and 2011, while Tesla’s Mr Musk paid nothing in 2018.
A White House spokeswoman called the leak illegal and the FBI and tax authorities are investigating.
