How To Get The Wealthy To Pay Their Taxes, Explained By Comic Artist Kasia Babis

Tax evasion is really trendy among the rich; Google ads probably suggest them legal packages titled ‘Not A Dime’. Take their idol Jeff Bezos and his company Amazon, for example. In 2018, Amazon posted an income of more than $11 billion, but the company paid $0 in federal taxes. Just like the year before. Yes, it was on the hook for a $162 million bill in 2019, but that was still just a fraction of the $13.9 billion in pre-tax income Amazon reported for 2019 — about 1.2%. Glorious. Why contribute to health, education, infrastructure, and other common goods when you can buy penthouses and private islands?


However, Polish artist Kasia Babis has an idea of how to get these people to pay taxes. Five, actually. And she has put them all in a humorous satirical comic that cleverly pokes fun at the shortcomings of our elite.
