Off the tax hook
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.
