NPR has it that after the smoke a dust of special deductions had cleared, Teh Orange Fucktard paid about 3%, not 25%.

I paid more than all the rotten bastards.

Take off and nuke 'em from orbit. It's the only way...and so on.

Does your 1040 work like that? What my 1040 shows is the total amount I earned and owed after my deductions, whatever they are. For him it comes out to ~25%. Where did Mr. NPR pull that 3% from. Sniff it and get back to us.

linky here: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/ ... to-abolish

My bad: It appears he did pay the higher rate, but would have paid only 3.8% without the AMP. This is the one he wants to abolish.

Did he break the law? If not then there is zero reason to criticize him, go blame congress.

OTOH, this is not a new peculiarly anti-Trump method of demagoguery.

It is a old as personal income tax.

This is my penance for making a false prophesy in that other thread.

Ivanka Trump takes in Broadway show with Justin Trudeau

... Trudeau had previously announced that he'd be in attendance with his wife. ...

“Come From Away,” with book, music and lyrics by Canadian husband-and-wife team Irene Sankoff and David Hein, begins on Sept. 11, 2001, and tells the true story of a group of 6,579 people on 38 planes forced to land unexpectedly in Gander, Newfoundland and how the local residents embrace their new neighbors.

Of course not. And I agree that the story is ... bent... to put Teh Orange Fucktard in a bad light. OTOH, do you really want the 1% paying only 3.8 while you and I pay our usual tithe? 'Cause if TOF gets his way, that's what'll happen.

What is more interesting is how the media got the return in the first place. Who mailed it to that reporter. We know the IRS wasn't involved because it is unsigned and is stamped "CLIENT COPY". So it came from either the accounting firm or from the Trump household. Did The Don send it? If so it was a brilliant move.

Why are you putting anything on Trump? Tax law is from congress.

When your business is real estate your taxes are primarily property taxes, not income taxes. And the reason for that are tax laws passed long before Trump was known outside of the NYC real estate bubble.

Because he wants it.

Irrelevant to the issue at hand.

According to one source ...
The report puts Trump’s total net worth at approximately $4.56 billion, including$1.38 billion worth of New York City commercial real estate; $351.55 million in New York residential properties;$1.57 billion in golf courses, resorts and related facilities across the world; and \$823 million in interests in joint ventures.

That would put his NYC holdings at ~1.7B. Their property tax rate is very low, 0.18%. That puts his property taxes at less than 3M. That's just for NYC though. The other stuff will certainly have higher rates. The number I pull from my ass is another 10M. Not chump change but less than his federal income taxes.

Unsigned?

Then it's really really nothing.

Get a blank 1040 for that year. Fill it out however you like. Stamp it "CLIENT COPY".

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I wonder how that guy got the tax return.

I suspect Trump is behind the leak. Just one year where he paid a lot of taxes? What's in the other years? The ones he doesn't want us to see?
