ProPublica has the tax details of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and more than 50 other of the richest Americans

ProPublica announced this morning that an anonymous source sent them the tax details of some of America’s richest billionaires and will begin publishing these details because they “believe the public interest in an informed debate outweighs privacy considerations”:

The filings of “more than 50 separate people” include Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett and Elon Musk:

From ProPublica:

It is now clear that there isn’t just one such taxpayer — there are many, in multiple industries. We believe that disclosing the identities of billionaires who paid little to no taxes in years their fortunes grew by billions of dollars will help readers understand the magnitude of the tax advantages the ultrarich enjoy.

We also believe that disclosure of specific figures about the tax returns of people like Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett and Elon Musk will deepen readers’ interest and understanding of this complex and arcane subject.

But they’re already coming under fire for the way they’re calculating “their true tax rate”:

And “It’s rare that a feature package with so much work put into it actually leaves readers *worse* informed than before, but this investigation manages to do so”:

Good work, guys:

It does read like it’s straight out of Elizabeth Warren’s office:

Libs cheered on when the NYT disclosed former President Trump’s taxes, so they should be in favor of this, right?
