This may have helped Mr. Bezos(we should all be this lucky): 

Amazon, possibly on its way to becoming America’s first trillion-dollar company, paid zero dollars in federal taxes for 2017, despite earning $5.6 billion in income.

SFGate reports that $724 million of Amazon’s $769 million tax bill for the year are foreign taxes, according to an analysis drawn from the company’s 2017 10-K form.


Amazon also will receive a tax break of about $789 million for 2018, thanks to the Republicans’ new tax plan.
