Amazon fired back at presidential candidate Joe Biden after the former vice president accused the company of not "paying its fair share" of taxes.
Biden tweeted on Friday:
"I've said it before, and I'll say it again: No company pulling in billions of dollars in profits should pay a lower tax rate than firefighters and teachers.
It's time for Amazon to pay its fair share."
Amazon retweeted Biden's tweet and replied directly to the former VP:
"@JoeBiden We pay every cent owed. You spent 3 decades in the Senate & know that Congress wrote these tax laws to encourage companies to invest in the US economy. We have. 500k jobs w/ a min wage of $15/hr across 40 states. Assume your complaint is w/ the tax code, not Amazon."
