Elon Musk, the richest person in the world, asked his followers on Twitter, ‘Should I sell my shares in Tesla?’
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk asked his followers about the future of his shares in Tesla. Reacting to the ‘billionaires tax’ bill in the US, Musk started a poll on Twitter by asking the question, “Should I sell 10 percent of the Tesla shares I own?”. Musk also announced that he would comply regardless of the result.
Of the 3.5 million Twitter users surveyed, 58 percent answered ‘yes’ to the sale of shares. If he sells 10 percent of these shares, he will get about 21 billion dollars. Musk, who has recently had a direct impact on the crypto money markets with his Twitter shares, has 62 million 645 thousand 429 followers.
Billionaires Will Pay Taxes
Democrat members of the US Senate announced the ‘billionaires tax’ proposal. Billionaires in the country will pay taxes on their stocks and other assets. The proposal aims to prevent billionaires from “dodging tax” and requires them to pay annual taxes on their stocks and other assets.
The tax plan, which is expected to generate hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue, is planned to affect taxpayers who have more than $1 billion in assets or more than $100 million in income for three consecutive years.
In this context, approximately 700 people are expected to be subject to this tax.
