"No company pulling in billions of dollars of profits should pay a lower tax rate than firefighters and teachers", Biden continued.
If the tax rate had been paid in full, without taking advantage of tax loopholes, it would have set Amazon back $2.27 billion in 2018.

Biden tried to contrast the tax rate paid by Amazon with the tax rates paid by everyday workers.

For decades, profitable companies have been able to avoid corporate taxes. But the list of those paying zero roughly doubled previous year as a result of provisions in President Trump's 2017 tax bill that expanded corporate tax breaks and reduced the tax rate on corporate income. Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who, after Biden, are receiving the most public support in 2020 polls, have focused on decreasing the wealth gap and raising taxes on the wealthy.
But Amazon has also waged unusually public fights to lower the taxes it owes, such as a new tax on large employers that Seattle passed a year ago, only to repeal it after an aggressive opposition campaign by Amazon and other employers.
