My recollection is that after one of the campaigns there was the allegation that Trump may have paid no taxes in some years. Again, my recollection is that Trump did not particular dispute that. I do not recall anyone-Trump surrogates, media, a CPA in Idaho-saying that of course he didn't pay nothing because of the AMT. I am puzzled as to why noone called BS on the claim that he could have paid no taxes. Unless I am wrong about how the AMT works, there must be a couple of million people who knew that it was wrong. Even if 90% of them had partisan or strategic reasons to keep the info to themselves, that still leaves a lot of people who could have said "Uh, guys, you're wrong."
I don't know man, he's self employed and owns all these corporations. Paying nothing one year wouldn't surprise me, and paying 38 million one year doesn't surprise me.
yes pretty much. i help self-employed guys calculate their annual income for child support purposes, and i always ask the court to aggregate the last five years of returns rather than cherry picking one year for just this reason.
Concur, self-employed people have weird tax returns. They also don't have only 2 pages. Shit's a work.
