How much tax has "Amazon" paid??

I'm too lazy to look it up, but how much does Amazon pay in taxes? Payroll? Property? Sales tax - state, county, city, federal etc?

I'm personally involved in numerous Amazon projects in the metro and most of you would pass out if you saw the amount of fees and taxes they pay to get a project out of the ground before they can process the first box through that location.

Anytime I see "they don't pay their fair share", I just chuckle. Most of us pay every penny legally owed to the IRS, and not a penny more. IF what Bezos and others pay was illegal, they'd be arrested and penalized. They aren't. If you are jealous/envious of them and how they pay their share legally, then take it up with the IRS and their convoluted code.

Want to fix it? Everyone pay a flat 10% income tax. You make a dollar - 10%. You make a billion - 10%. but that will never happen cause then the gubmint can't buy votes by making stupid tax code promises to both sides.
