Quoting someone's effictive tax rate doesn't mean much if you are not going to tell the whole story.
Did you read that article? Because even it admits it's impossible to figure out what their effective tax rate was.

Even if the 30% is accurate (which even the article says it's a guess) that's still well below what they would've been taxed at if it was a payroll tax.
