“Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?” he wrote with the poll, which currently skews 57% yes after 3 million votes, with a few hours still to go.

He added that “I do not take a cash salary or bonus from anywhere. I only have stock, thus the only way for me to pay taxes personally is to sell stock.”

As of February, he held 227 million Tesla shares, according to an SEC filing, amounting to 22.4% of its stock. 10% of his stake would be worth roughly $27.8 billion, Forbes reports.

He is worth $318.4 billion overall, via the outlet’s calculations.

He also recently made a billions-worth pledge under certain conditions.
