    This brings up a question I don't know how to even research.

    I wanted to stop you here. You must be kidding. I hear people from bitching about their taxes all day long. Secondly, everyone can reduces their taxable income by donating to 501 c3's. I don't...

    No, it is not. There is no federal tax on ΔWealth. That ProPublica thinks there should be, is beside the point. It would be as silly as computing Bezos' "true tax rate" based on other new taxes...
