Trump reportedly paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, zero in 10 previous years

Press TV

US President  Donald Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency and zero income taxes in ten of the previous 15 years, a new report reveals.

“In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750,” said The New York Times in a report on Sunday. “As the president wages a re-election campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing, his finances are under stress, beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt coming due that he has personally guaranteed.”

It added that the information had been obtained through “tax-return data extending over more than two decades for Mr. Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization, including detailed information from his first two years in office.”

The US president responded to the allegation that he has paid no federal income taxes whatsoever in 10 of the past 15 years beginning in 2000.

President Trump denied wrongdoing and attacked the IRS in response to questions about a New York Times investigation into his taxes.

“It’s totally fake news,” Trump said as he often does when confronted with reports criticizing him.

He further attacked the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), saying, “they treat me very badly.”

Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, also claimed that, “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate.”

Listen to this pathetically weak pushback on the New York Times report about his tax returns. Trump is a con man.

“Over the past decade, President Trump has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015,” Mr. Garten said in a statement.

According to the New York Time, “With the term ‘personal taxes,’ however, Mr. Garten appears to be conflating income taxes with other federal taxes Mr. Trump has paid.”–750-in-federal-income-taxes-in-2016

    this is probably a lie too , but …

    So. I finally read the NYT Trump tax story because I wanted to see what line was being reported for taxes owed and I came across this about the $750 in 2016 and 2017. Per the NYT own story, Trump actually paid to the US Treasury $1 million in 2016 and $4.2 million in 2017.”.. this .. from the liars themselves telling you something different this time WTF?

    I still say we should all stop paying..and start fighting , think of all the guns and ammo your paid tax dollars could afford you, i could have bought my dam Abrams A1M1 by now

    just remember they all become millionaires or billionaires “working” in our government , while we bust our asses to make them rich
    we should really do something about that , right? .. they are just using your money against you ……

    I wonder whatever became of the ‘panama papers’..
