Amazon har tjänat 11,2 miljarder dollar 2018 men inte betalat en enda dollar i federal skatt. Handelsjätten kommer inte betala någon federal skatt för 2019 heller.

Nu ska tilläggas att detta inte handlar om några olagligheter utan Amazon betalar den skatt som lagstiftningen kräver.

While some people have received some surprise tax bills when filing their returns, corporations continue to avoid paying tax — thanks to a cocktail of tax credits, loopholes, and exemptions.

According to a report from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), Amazon (AMZN) will pay nothing in federal income taxes for the second year in a row.

Thanks to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), Amazon’s federal tax responsibility is 21% (down from 35% in previous years). But with the help of tax breaks, according to corporate filings, Amazon won’t be paying a dime to Uncle Sam despite posting more than $11.2 billion in profits in 2018.

Det finns kanske anledning att diskutera de amerikanska skattelagarna.
