Bezos May Have Trouble Securing Tax Benefits With WaPo


Bezos May Have Trouble Securing Tax Benefits With WaPo

by Frank L. Brunetti on August 21, 2013 founder and chief executive Jeff Bezos turned some heads when the

billionaire decided to purchase the Washington Post for a reported $250 million. While it

remains to be seen what direction Bezos will take the newspaper, one thing some experts agree on is that he will need to utilize a hands-on approach with it to make it a viable business once again and reap major tax benefits.

After the announcement, Bezos noted he plans to remain in Seattle, where he continues to oversee many aspects of his online retail giant, meaning he personally won't be working on restructuring WaPo on a day-to-day basis. This, experts told the source, is why tax benefits may elude Bezos.
