That’s exactly what the article said, they made up their


Own tax calculation based on wealth (delta). They generated a made up tax rate based on the increase in his personal wealth. I am sure this is mostly his Amazon stock. This tax rate has absolutely no correlation to our actual tax code, none.

I’m ok with him paying tax on his income. Which he did. He reported $4.2 billion in income and paid the appropriate (high) tax rate.

Do you think it’s a good idea to charge taxes on unrealized gains? That’s what they are proposing, or crying about how it looks if he doesn’t.

Do you realize that if Bezos or his heirs ever sell the stocks in the future, thereby realizing the gain, they will pay tax on that money? Also, if there are dividends paid they will pay the tax.
