Global Tax seeks to be a proactive, strategic partner for the planning and growth of Amazon’s business to ensure tax, legal, and regulatory compliance on a global basis. Global Tax applies the same proactive mindset with external tax authorities to evaluate prospective legislation and regulations, and to address future risk. Our mission is supported by the four basic Tax functions: (1) Tax Planning, (2) Tax Reporting & Compliance, (3) Tax Audit, and (4) Tax Policy.
Tax Planning supports Amazon's business activities from an overall tax perspective. This support includes, but is not limited to, advising on the tax impacts of business launches, expansions, and changes, and developing tax-related policies. In addition, the group drives the efficient implementation of tax laws and provides various levels of tax controllership.
Reporting & Compliance
Tax Reporting & Compliance ensures Amazon remains in compliance with its worldwide tax obligations and tax-related financial disclosures. This includes, but is not limited to, filing Amazon's various worldwide direct (income) and indirect (VAT, GST, etc.) tax returns, remitting tax due to tax authorities (on behalf of Amazon and our payees), and preparing certain financial statement disclosures (tax provision).
Audit & Controversy
Tax Audit & Controversy manages tax audits and related queries from tax authorities in various jurisdictions, primarily in the Americas and APAC. The group collaborates with other tax functions, such as Transfer Pricing, International Tax, and Tax Reporting & Compliance in the management of all aspects of such tax audits. Tax Audit & Controversy is also responsible for reviewing US Power of Attorneys (Form 2848s) to ensure compliance with IRS instructions, consistency, and tracking of all authorizations.
Tax Policy engages with government representatives for the purpose of influencing and explaining potential tax legislation or regulations at the city, state, national, regional (i.e., EU), and global level. The group also engages with quasi-governmental organizations, such as the OECD, EU, IMF, Committee on State Taxation, the Tax Foundation, and others. Tax Policy partners with Amazon Public Policy and works closely with industry groups.
