Including $1.2 million in Cisco stock, a company that pays
little or no federal income tax.
Not sure where you got this, but Cisco, like most of the tech powerhouses, pays a TON of federal income tax. Their last 10-Q says that their most recent provision for income tax was $395M for the quarter.
$1.6B/year isn't "little or no" tax in my book.
