A peek inside the black box that is OpenAI’s finances.

OpenAI’s nonprofit parent company — the one with the board that suddenly fired Sam Altman last month — has its finances made public each year by the government. The numbers for 2022 were recently published by the IRS, and you can view the filing below.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t say much, given that it excludes the financials for OpenAI’s commercial entity that makes ChatGPT. What the filing does show is that Altman was paid $73,546 in 2022. Co-founders Greg Brockman and Ilya Sutskever were paid $113,727 and $334,572, respectively. What about the three board members who voted to fire Altman alongside Sutskever? They were paid nothing.
