Donald Trump, president of America accused Amazon with a clear claiming through his tweet in June on Wednesday morning. His tweet says that, “amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers. Towns, cities and states throughout the United States are being hurt, many jobs being lost!”
This tweet is a through back of his earlier characterization of Amazon that it is ‘no tax monopoly’ which does not pay ‘internet taxes’. This claim by Donald Trump is being said false that Amazon does not pay any taxes. The latest annual report submitted by the company to the Securities and Exchange Commission. This report disclose that the company has paid $177 million as income taxes in year 2014, $273 million in year 2015 and $412 million in the last year.
Besides the taxes issues, Amazon also stepping forward in hiring employees rapidly as it is getting expanded. It is reported that Amazon has an aim of hiring 50,000 workers in a single day of this month. The company is aiming to hire 100,000 full-time working employees by the next year over in the United States.Then the company is planning to opportune more than 280,000 full time employees by 2018 over the United States.
It is said that the retailers in clothing, electronics appliances, sports, books and goods are assumed to be the competitors directly with the online sellers.
The complaints are not new, as it arrived previously also regarding retailers’ taxes and the company ‘The Washington Post’ owned since 2013 by Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon. Also there was a long bitter quarrel in between Mr. Trump and Jeff Bezos based on all these issues.
