Jamie Dimon happy with paying more tax


JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon would be fine with having to pay a bit more in taxes.

CNN Money reports that Dimon, who made $20m last year and is now a billionaire, made the comments Sunday on NBC's 'Meet the Press'.

'If you said to me, 'Would you pay 10% more?' I would have no problem with that', he said. The top income tax rate for people like Dimon is currently 39.6%. In the past, America's wealthiest have faced a tax rate as high as 91%.

How much senior executives make - and pay in taxes - has become a hot issue on the 2016 campaign trail. Republican frontrunner Donald Trump says it's a 'complete joke' that CEOs make so much money.
