NEW YORK: Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates have said that he should pay more in taxes and that the government should require other super-wealthy people like him to contribute “significantly higher” amounts.

“I need to pay higher taxes,” Gates, who is worth over $90 billion, said in a CNN interview on Sunday.

“I`ve paid more taxes, over $10 billion, than anyone else, but the government should require the people in my position to pay significantly higher taxes,” he said.

Gates, the second richest man in the world after Amazon`s Jeff Bezos, did not mince his words when it came to the Republican tax law, which cut taxes for corporations.
