13 Things You Need to Know About Steve Jobs And Apple

3 of 13

Steve Jobs has had an annual salary of $1 for over a decade.

This may seem like a noble, if not crazy, gesture at first glance...but don’t worry, Steve’s still making out quite well in the end. As Apple’s largest shareholder with 5.5 million shares of their common stock, his total personal assets around worth around $1.84 billion! He also received another $248,000 this past year for lending out his private plane for business usage. This is not to mention the fact that Jobs is also the majority shareholder in terms of Disney stock from when he sold them Pixar! Because he doesn’t take the salary of a “real” CEO, he also pays less in taxes on the dividends earned from this Disney stock.
