Billionaire Elon Musk said on Twitter that he will pay more taxes than any American in history. The businessman used this argument in another quarrel with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

“Open your eyes for at least a couple of seconds. I will pay more taxes this year than any other American in history. ”

Warren supports the introduction of a “wealth tax”. If this initiative is adopted, then large holders of capital in the United States will have to pay a fee not only on income, but also on assets at their disposal.

Musk repeatedly ridiculed this legislative initiative in November. When he was accused of tax evasion, the Tesla founder simply released more shares of his company to the market.

Then he criticized Bernie Sanders. 108 – A summer senator said that wealthy Americans should pay a “fair price” for their savings.

Interestingly, the tax evasion charges against Musk are not unfounded. V 2018 year, then the billionaire was recognized as the second richest man in the world, the founder of Tesla did not pay a penny of income tax.

V 2017 and 2019 he contributed everything to the treasury 100 of thousands of dollars, which, given the multibillion-dollar fortune, American senators regarded as a mockery.

According to preliminary estimates, Musk is due to pay out about $ 7.6 billion this year. If a businessman continues to issue securities, then his debt may grow to 18 billion dollars or up to 80 billion dollars in case of “tax on wealth.”

Earlier we talked about how Musk once again provided a “boost” to DOGE. He stated that this currency is better than BTC as a means of payment.
