To be fair, cutting his salary to $1 is actually a business move. He will pull in money from so many other assets that he will be rich no matter what. Look at stocks he plays with daily.

Then at the end of the year he can list his income from work as $1, and won't get hit with taxes for it and pay less taxes elsewhere. `

May be that could be a possible reason.
