Leading firms Waste Management Inc and Republic Services Inc are included in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, a benchmark for socially conscious investing. BlackRock owns a 4.6% share of Republic Services and 5% of Waste Management, mainly through funds that track third-party indexes. Officials for Republic Services and Waste Management said they were cooperating with the California flyover surveys. Republic Services said in a statement that the aerial survey data represents snapshot data that may not accurately capture routine emissions at its facility. The Biden administration last month announced it would require more U.S. landfills to install gas-capture systems to help limit methane emissions.

Methane menace: Aerial survey spots 'super-emitter' landfills

The survey found "super-emitter" landfills accounted for 43% the measured emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane - outpacing the fossil-fuel and agricultural sectors. BlackRock owns a 4.6% share of Republic Services and 5% of Waste Management, mainly through funds that track third-party indexes. Such methods "really don't do the job anymore," said Jean Bogner, a University of Illinois researcher who has studied methane emissions in landfills since the 1970s. The U.N. estimates that landfills and wastewater produce about a fifth of the world’s human-caused methane emissions, behind only agriculture and the oil-and-gas industry. The Biden administration last month announced it would require more U.S. landfills to install gas-capture systems to help limit methane emissions.

Live Live Updates: Final Democratic Debate for New York Mayor Begins Eric Adams appears to be the front-runner, but Maya Wiley and Kathryn Garcia are close behind, and other candidates will be looking to improve their fortunes during their final encounter. Before running for president, Mr. Yang had a mixed record as an entrepreneur. Mr. Yang has positioned himself as New York City’s chief cheerleader, running for mayor as an optimistic government outsider. Blue for The New York Times For the first time in a mayor’s race, New York City will use a system called ranked-choice voting. The same system will be operative for all city elections, including for seats in the New York City Council and the offices of the borough presidents, the public advocate and the New York City comptroller.

But other candidates also had their supporters amassed outside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the debate will be held. Ms. Russo joined WNBC in 1998 and has covered four New York City mayors and dozens of elections. The same system will be operative for all city elections, including for seats in the New York City Council and the offices of the borough presidents, the public advocate and the New York City comptroller. The final debate may represent the last major chance for candidates to break out or reorder the race.

Why Billionaires Pay So Little Tax

Listen and follow The DailyApple Podcasts | Spotify | StitcherJeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, Elon Musk and George Soros are household names. They are worth billions and are among the wealthiest people in the United States. A recent report by ProPublica has found another thing that separates them from regular Americans: They have paid almost nothing in taxes. Using a complex web of loopholes, they have been able to do so while remaining inside the bounds of the law. Why does the U.S. tax system let that happen?

The journalist discussed Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, and Michael Bloomberg. ProPublica recently published a bombshell report on how billionaires including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffett pay minimal federal income tax relative to their vast fortunes. Everybody has said, 'Checkmate, ProPublica, you idiots, we don't tax unrealized gains in this country,' to which we say, 'Yes, that is the point of our article.'" "If you had asked tax experts and wealth experts last week, 'Does Jeff Bezos pay zero in federal income tax? "There are whole swaths of the tax system that just simply do not function anymore.

It’s an open secret that the uber-rich don’t pay their fair share in taxes. But Jesse Eisinger and his team at ProPublica have unearthed the numbers to back that up. In “The Secret I.R.S. Files,” they combed through more than 15 years of federal income tax records, revealing that Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, George Soros and many more have paid as little as $0 in recent years. By amassing and borrowing off their wealth, while minimizing how much of it is treated as income, these billionaires live outside the tax system perfectly legally.

The info confirmed what many tax experts already know: There is one tax system for the rich and another for everyone else. By using perfectly legal and straightforward strategies, wealthy people can essentially choose whether and how much income tax they want to pay. As ProPublica illustrated, our income tax system does a poor job of truly capturing the economic income of our richest, especially if you think income should more closely match spending power. Longtime tax system critic David Cay Johnston hailed the ProPublica release as the “biggest and most important” tax story in his 55-year career. The Biden administration has committed to addressing some of the inequities of our current income tax system, including ensuring a greater equivalence between the way the tax system treats capital and labor income.

While not illegal, tax avoidance strategies can seen as unethical, says business ethics scholar Erin Bass. It claims to provide an insight into how prominent billionaires such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Michael Bloomberg take advantage of "tax avoidance strategies" beyond the reach of ordinary people. An individual who adopts the deontological perspective likely evaluates a public figure's tax avoidance strategies — and that of others — with less scrutiny. For example, someone may use tax avoidance strategies and direct some wealth to provide funding directly to an academic health care center for cancer research. But if that person employs tax avoidance strategies in the absence of any other virtuous behaviors, then the tax avoidance is likely to be seen and rationalized as unethical.

The fact is, you pay a much higher percentage of your net worth than billionaires do. How raising taxes on the uber-rich would benefit the average AmericanIf Elon Musk paid the same percentage in taxes as the average American, his day-to-day life wouldn't change at all. In the latest episode of Hanauer's podcast, "Pitchfork Economics," millionaire Danish entrepreneur Djaffar Shalchi discussed why he's an advocate for wealth taxes. But while wealthy Americans love to complain about taxes, Shalchi knows that he gets great value in return for what he pays. In Denmark, "I don't see people sleeping in the streets like I see in many other countries," he said.

CNBC's Jim Cramer on Friday suggested the U.S. impose a surtax on billionaires following this week's ProPublica report on how some of the richest people on the planet are avoiding taxes. And I know avoid is legal and the government says you can do everything you can to avoid. Let's come up with something for this small group," added Cramer, who spoke in generalities about a billionaire surtax. However, he did describe an approach that differed from Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's wealth tax proposal. Cramer also talked about a billionaire surtax in a series of tweets Friday, saying "these revelations make me sick," referring to the tax avoidance strategies employed by the uber-wealthy in the ProPublica report.

Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers on Wednesday that investigating the source of a massive leak of taxpayer information behind an article by investigative news outlet ProPublica will be one of his top priorities. Tax information is generally confidential and those who disclosed the documents could be subject to criminal liability. "He said that their inspectors were working on it, and I'm sure that that means it will be referred to the Justice Department," Garland said. Also Wednesday, Garland defended the Justice Department against criticisms from the left that it was not moving fast enough to distance itself from the Trump administration.

Western Michigan University has received a $550 million gift from a group of alumni, a record for a public university that more than doubles the school’s endowment. The foundation for the Kalamazoo, Mich., university will get $200 million earmarked for the main university, $300 million for its medical school and $50 million for athletics. The money will fund scholarships, medical research, student support programs and more, the school said. The combined endowments for Michigan State University and its foundation were $3.4 billion, and the University of Michigan’s endowment came in at $12.5 billion, in fiscal 2020, according to the report. By comparison, businessman Michael Bloomberg’s $1.8 billion gift to Johns Hopkins University in 2018 is the largest ever donation to any university—public or private—and Harvard University’s endowment is roughly 100 times as big as Western Michigan’s.

Couples in the highest income tax rate bracket paid a rate of 37% on earnings higher than $628,300, the report said. In 2007, Bezos "did not pay a penny in federal income taxes," and he also avoided any federal income tax liability in 2011, the article said. Musk, who had an actual taxable income of $1.52 billion during the five-year period, paid no federal income taxes in 2018, according to ProPublica. Icahn, another investor, paid no federal income tax in 2016 and 2017, years in which his total adjusted gross income was $544 million, the article said. "There's a reason it's called income tax," Icahn was quoted as saying in the article.

New York (CNN Business) The Biden administration said Tuesday it is investigating how tax information from several of the world's richest people -- including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Warren Buffett -- was leaked to the public. "The unauthorized disclosure of confidential government information is illegal," said Treasury spokeswoman Lily Adams. The investigation comes after a report that showed new information from a trove of never-before-seen IRS records. Earlier Tuesday, ProPublica reported on exclusively obtained IRS documents which showed how the likes of Bezos, Musk, Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg and Michael Bloomberg have legally avoided paying income tax. Psaki also reiterated the Biden administration's stance on having wealthy Americans pay more taxes to fund the President's proposals.

The New York City comptroller serves as the fiscal watchdog, which is serious business in a city with a budget of nearly $99 billion. This is a job for Brad Lander, a veteran councilman from Brooklyn who is among the hardest-working and most effective public servants in the city. In the following decade, Mr. Lander sponsored legislation that expanded paid sick leave, strengthened protections for tenants and increased rapid bus service for New Yorkers. He also took on common-sense measures, like getting air-conditioners into city schools, that made life easier. Mr. Lander has repeatedly risked his political career to take unpopular stances.

I didn’t even feel it when Dr. Chester pierced my arm.”New York was about to get a second chance. Wall Street boomed and property values soared, drawing foreign investors who parked their fortunes in constantly appreciating New York City real estate. Mayor Bill de Blasio, now in his second and final term, has proposed the biggest budget in New York City history. Of the 100 biggest school districts in America, New York City’s school system already spends the most per capita. The mayoral candidate Kathryn Garcia, formerly the commissioner for the New York City Sanitation Department, pulled ahead in the polls in late May.

“We need a plainclothes unit to go after illegal guns,” Mr. Adams says, adding that he’d fund it by eliminating clerical jobs in the department. We hired them to go after violent crime.”Like his opponents, Mr. Adams opposes widespread stop and frisk. “It is unconscionable that three out of four shooters are still on the loose in Brooklyn.”Mr. Yang’s critics, including Mr. Adams, write him off as unserious. That’s the case for many attendees at an Asian-American rally for Mr. Adams in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens on a Sunday morning.
