Former Trump tax adviser: Trump had 'zero involvement' in preparing tax returns

Now we can be fairly confident why the candidate has not released his tax returns, and likely never will.

Asked specifically about federal income tax, she replied, "Well, he certainly has, in years that he made a profit, like anybody else". If the federal government taxes income, and if, after his astounding one-year loss, Trump's income balances out to zero over those 18 years, the problem is with the way we levy taxes, not with Trump's avoidance of paying taxes he didn't owe.

Almost half a million ME households paid federal income tax two years ago, according to the most recent IRS statistics.

Eric Trump: I'm answering the question.

The documents a NYT journalist received in her mailbox gave insight on why GOP Presidential Nominee Donald Trump has been so hesitant to reveal his tax returns.

Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize For Literature

The Trump camp hasn't admitted that the candidate avoided paying taxes for 18 years, nor has it denied it. "You have the debate performance which polls have shown that he underperformed", Madonna said. If you are wealthy and pay no taxes, you are a smart business person.

On Tuesday, Sanders announced he will introduce legislation during the next session of Congress aimed at closing the loopholes Trump possibly used to avoid paying taxes. I mean how do you get more acclaimed than that?

Am I speaking of Donald Trump?

It's not clear whether the younger Trump is conceding that his father, as an individual, doesn't pay much in taxes.

"The man's a genius", former NY mayor and Trump supporter Rudolph Giuliani said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union".

Mr. Trump also mocked Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, for the former president's comments Monday that the Affordable Care Act, the signature domestic policy achievement of the Obama administration, was "the craziest thing in the world".
