— For every $1,000 spent on a Lexus sedan, $50 is returned to taxpayers, according to a new report.
Lexus said it plans to provide a $1 million refund to taxpayers after its 2016 tax returns showed that some of the money went to legal expenses, including its own defense fund and the lawyers for former president Barack Obama and his family.
The company has made the announcement in response to a lawsuit filed by a former employee who alleged she was cheated out of money that she claimed to have received.
The suit also alleged the company withheld $2 million from taxpayers because it didn’t pay its workers enough.
Lexis said in a statement that it has “a strong track record of ensuring our employees are treated fairly and fairly is in keeping with our values as a company.”
