Trump sucks but Only has a point. Did he break the law or not? Charge him if he did. If you don't like him paying zero taxes legally then change your laws.

The IRS is lookig into it.

New York is looking into it.

He cannot be prosecuted while in office.

His hair is a dependant on his tax returns

It costs over 70 thousand to cloth and shelter his beaver on top of his head

If Biden wins the first thing he will say will be "we need to look forward" just like Obama did with George Bush so no, I don't believe anyone is looking into it in any serious way. I'm sorry if i'm a drag on the thread for saying this but someone has to. We had, what, three years of "any day now, he'll be thrown in jail for collusion with Russia" and where are we? Nowhere. Waste of everyone's time. Meanwhile he stacked the courts for the next 20 years with conservative judges.

Luckily for him (and sad for selgular folks) he is a high profile figure using government lawyers to help him fight this.

He has sicked lawyers up and down not just trying to fight the release of his tax records, but help cheat Americans commiting massive tax fraud.

.

Regular working class folks wouldnt stand a chance fihghting even a true careless mistake, even as most everyone pay way more than Trump in taxes on $50 yearly income. Trumps hair is the big winner here.

That beaver on top of his head has it made on a tax-free $70 thousand dollar yearly income.

hog wash he used the same laws we all use... maybe what ought to be said is somehing like: he uses laws and rules that would be of little or no benefit to most people..."

and remember many of the years in question have already been audited. and some seem to live under the delusion that if he were to fail an audit that means he committed a crime... NO. I was soft audited...got a letter saying I owed more that I put on the 1040...so they would reduce my refund accordingly... another time I got back MORE as I did not take a credit for something? Another time I filed in may or june and had to pay some penalties and interest. And one last one was I got a letter of review becasue I did not file a form for 1099 and I just inclueded it as misalaious income but I put in the notes what it was... but the note section was just for MY benift. So I had to call and pay in google play cards..

trump claims he's paid millions, but the records do not show that.

He's a liar.

It is likely he lied to the IRS... and if they are in fact auditing him, it is probably with reason.

You are even more consfused as you changed ypur argument and now going back back and forth. You just admited that Trump is using his influence on goverment agancies, NOT available to public citizens and especially not those just barely keping their heads above water, and using goverment againcies to help him with the New York cases against him.

So you imagine that trump's audit is just like those applied to people with a history of not being able to fill forms correctly so there forms need really minor and administrative adjustments lust s likely to benefit of the dear old soul?

.

I suspect you are making things up or you have been scammed: The IRS would never request payment by gift card:

.

From January to September of this year, 54 percent of government-impostor scams involved the use of a gift card or reloadable payment card, according to the FTC. The next most common method of payment was a wire transfer, at 16 percent. In just 5 percent of the reported cases, the con artists ask for cash.

Vaca said Google Play and iTunes cards were the top two types of gift cards victims were asked to buy. Forty-two percent of people who said they paid a scammer using a gift or reload card were instructed to pay in iTunes (23.7 percent) or Google Play (18.3 percent) cards.

There are three reasons gift cards are increasingly the con artist’s preferred payment method, Vaca said. The transaction is largely irreversible for the consumer. It’s quick money, and the scammer can remain anonymous. Link

I was the #3 office in total billing over people that had been doing it for years. I was fast and efficient. Now there is not much market with all the free online ways to file.

And, if he willfully overstated deductions, credits and adjustments or understated income, he can be charged with a felony crime. Hearing you worked as a part time H&R block form filler working at the level that has been replaced by online system explains why you know so little about tax law and made all the errors you claimed to have made. The accuracy rate of the H&R temps vs dear old souls filling things out on line is not that different.

.

The "joke" changes nothing - your frequent administrative and minor inadvertent errors are not comparable to the audits of people like trump. You are comparing basic and easily fixable minor errors by people with little skill and understanding to a review seeking to find willful criminal action under the tax code and a legal team that will look at the cost and likelihood of conviction and the impact on system compliance before charges are laid.

you assume or seem to presume likely that there was any willful conduct. you also fail to grasp these retures have been and passed an audit (or worst case he had to pay more).

and how many US tax retues have you filed? when you get to 1000 let me know then we can talk

.

You assume too much when you unequivocably say multiple times that your guy did no crime.

.

You have demonstrated a seriously compromised understanding of IRS practices in high net worth individuals audits and US Income tax law with your erroneous claim on what is not a crime.

.

Forms filled in through H&R block by a temp does not compare to what I have filed with multiple revenue authorities in USA, New York, California, New Orleans, Navaho Nation, etc. In addition New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Japan, Italy, UK, Canada etc. Working in Australia for multinationals means I need a solid understanding of tax laws internationally. I have international accreditation as a CTA, a Masters in Taxation, have done doctoral research on taxation and write for Wolter Kluwer CCH. Come back to me when you have more than being a temp form filler for H&R block decades ago.

I'm repeating this for those that keep saying Trump committed no crimes and everything he did was on the up and up:


Where Trump could likely face legal issues regarding his taxes:

1. In 2010, Trump received a refund of $72.9 million. This is what has been under audit for all these years. Feds are saying that the refund may not be legal. Trump was able to claim the refund because Trump claimed $1.4 billion in losses in 2008 and 2009. Of course, since he claimed that refund, he also got a refund from states worth $21.2 million, which the states can then also get that money back from him. If the feds find that he exaggerated his losses, Trump will have to repay that amount and could be charged with tax fraud (in New York state too). But that is STILL under audit.

2. Trump wrote off $26 million in consulting fees between 2010 and 2018. Of these fees that he wrote off $747,622 were paid to a consulting firm that Ivanka owned half of the firm. Interestingly enough, Ivanka claimed she received $747,622 in consultant fees through that firm. Ivanka was also working for Trump's business at the time. There would have been no reason to pay Ivanka the consulting fees since she was employed by his company and received a salary. This would also be considered tax fraud.

3. Trump wrote off his 230 acre Westchester Esate as an investment property. An investment property indicates that they are renting the property out and that it is not "personal" property. However, on the Trump business site, they label it as a Trump family retreat and do not list it as available for rent, nor as an investment property. By classifying it as an investment property (though they list it as personal property on the Trump organization website), he was able to write $2.2 million in property taxes. Trump also got a $21.1 million charitable tax deduction by promising to not develop the land surrounding the property. (While it's not illegal to claim the charitable tax deduction as long as he doesn't develop the land, it's not legal to claim the property as an investment property, take a tax deduction from that, and then only use it as personal property.)

I'm repeating this for those that keep saying Trump committed no crimes and everything he did was on the up and up:


Where Trump could likely face legal issues regarding his taxes:

1. In 2010, Trump received a refund of $72.9 million. This is what has been under audit for all these years. Feds are saying that the refund may not be legal. Trump was able to claim the refund because Trump claimed $1.4 billion in losses in 2008 and 2009. Of course, since he claimed that refund, he also got a refund from states worth $21.2 million, which the states can then also get that money back from him. If the feds find that he exaggerated his losses, Trump will have to repay that amount and could be charged with tax fraud (in New York state too). But that is STILL under audit.

2. Trump wrote off $26 million in consulting fees between 2010 and 2018. Of these fees that he wrote off $747,622 were paid to a consulting firm that Ivanka owned half of the firm. Interestingly enough, Ivanka claimed she received $747,622 in consultant fees through that firm. Ivanka was also working for Trump's business at the time. There would have been no reason to pay Ivanka the consulting fees since she was employed by his company and received a salary. This would also be considered tax fraud.

3. Trump wrote off his 230 acre Westchester Esate as an investment property. An investment property indicates that they are renting the property out and that it is not "personal" property. However, on the Trump business site, they label it as a Trump family retreat and do not list it as available for rent, nor as an investment property. By classifying it as an investment property (though they list it as personal property on the Trump organization website), he was able to write $2.2 million in property taxes. Trump also got a $21.1 million charitable tax deduction by promising to not develop the land surrounding the property. (While it's not illegal to claim the charitable tax deduction as long as he doesn't develop the land, it's not legal to claim the property as an investment property, take a tax deduction from that, and then only use it as personal property.)


Very good points, Benni.
