Nike is one of several enormous and profitable U.S. companies that paid no federal taxes in the past three years, according to a study released Friday. Other well-known names included Duke Energy, FedEx, and Salesforce, though dozens more businesses in sectors like energy and industrial chemicals made the list.

Former President Donald Trump slashed the corporate tax rate in a sweeping bill in 2017, and President Joe Biden has pushed to raise it.
