I don’t believe in attacking people for success, but others do. A politician announced that Elon Musk needed to be taken down for not paying taxes. I love that his response was quick and simple… “For those wondering, I will pay over $11 Billion in taxes this year”. Most taxes ever paid by an American. He also has a number of write-offs, a number of areas where his value increases but he doesn’t pay until he cashes out, and more. You may hear that he paid nothing in 2018, but he noted that it was because he overpaid in previous years.

Elon Musk expects to pay over $11 billion in taxes in 2021. CNBC said the figures could represent “the single largest tax bill ever.” It comes as Musk has been selling off billions in Tesla stock.
