Off the tax hook

The Kansas City Star - - Opinion -

When you look at the amount of fed­eral in­come taxes you owe by April 15, con­sider this: Some 60 com­pa­nies in the For­tune 500 paid no fed­eral in­come taxes in 2018, and some got re­bates. These in­clude such giants as Ama­zon, Star­bucks and John Deere. Spe­cial tax breaks and loop­holes not closed or newly opened by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 make this pos­si­ble.

I pay more fed­eral taxes on my teacher re­tire­ment than is paid by Ama­zon. What’s wrong with this pic­ture? - Ca­role Kennedy, Columbia, Mis­souri
