Ya know how we know what these presidents paid in taxes over the years? Because they weren't hiding something and released their taxes. Showing the taxes of more upstanding presidents does nothing to bolster your argument.

I don't believe I have seen anyone on the board post any supporting evidence of the following not being accurate.

 

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow broke the news of Trump's taxes on Tuesday night, but the numbers were not what the liberal personality was expecting. The returns show that the President payed approximately $38 million in taxes on $150 million in earnings, equating to a federal tax rate of 25%.

In 2015, President Obama paid roughly $80,000 in taxes on $436,000, resulting in a tax rate of just 18.7%, according to the Washington Times.

TOO FUNNY!!

 

 


Here we are resourcing Sean Hannity again.

 

As stated earlier, any information garnered from a discredited, disreputable source such as Sean Hannity, is, in itself, tainted.

 

It renders any argument using this tainted material moot.

Some still just don't 'get it'. 2005 was almost 12 years ago and this was not an entire tax return. What would his returns show for the last 10 years ?????  And even this one doesn't show what some on the Right seem to think ................

In 2014, Senator Sanders paid just $27,653 to the treasury on his joint income of $205,271, equating to a tax rate of only 13.5%.

In 2012, Republican nominee Mitt Romney paid $1.9 million in taxes on earnings of over $13 million; an effective rate of 14.1%.

Not only did the President pay his 'fair share' to the US Treasury, Press Secretary Spicer vowed this week that President Trump will donate his entire salary in 2017 to charity.

===============================================

So much for "Trump did not pay Federal Income Taxes".

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow...she broke the story on her show last night.

If you want to see a "show" watch her...she is one radical left that uses her entire hour long program to come up with her conspiracy theories about Republicans ...and only has on guests that agree with her. Compare her program with Bill O'Reilly's ..Bill always has guests that go at it with different views and one learns about issues.

You are wrong--google CNN-Don Lemmon show which aired last night.  All this was covered.

The 2005 return isn’t really a bombshell. The two pages show tax information one would expect for someone with Trump’s wealth and businesses.

 

He paid roughly $5.3 million under regular federal income tax guidelines—a pittance for someone with his reported fortune—but also paid $31 million in what’s known as the “alternative minimum tax,” bringing his federal payment that year to about 25 percent of his income.

 

Trump’s tax plan released during his campaign vowed to eliminate “the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) while providing the lowest tax rate since before World War II.” One thing the return does reveal is that, at least in 2005, that change might have lowered Trump’s effective tax rate from 25 percent to just 4 percent.

 

It also shows that Trump checked the box for $3 of his taxes to be funneled into the presidential election campaign fund—in a year when fewer than one in 10 filers did the same.
