  • SpaceX founder Elon Musk earned $13.9 billion from 2014 to 2018 and paid $455 million, which is 3.27 percent tax rate. In 2018, Musk paid no taxes at all.


    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made $99 billion and paid $4.33 billion over the same four years - his tax rate was just 0.98 percent. And in 2007 he also did not pay income tax.

    Warren Buffett evades payment the most. According to Forbes, his fortune grew by $24.3 billion between 2014 and 2018. During this time, Buffett paid $23.7 million (!) in taxes, less than ten cents for every $100 he earned.
