Amazon Paid $0 in Federal Income Tax & Rethinking Race at University of Akron
While many folks are finding an unpleasant surprise this tax season, lower returns or even owing more, Amazon paid $0 in federal income taxes for 2018 even as it pulled in record earnings. We need a tax expert to explain how this can be, and so we've invited Cleveland State's Debra Geier back to The Sound of Ideas. Also, we'll preview the University of Akron's "Rethinking Race" initiative.
