Straight from the BBC

Trump quotes about taxes.

His and others.

 

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-37535643

 

The Republican presidential candidate has used his Twitter megaphone in recent years to wag a finger at everyone from Barack Obama to Mark Zuckerberg on paying their fair share.

Re: Straight from the BBC

the article states that Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property

taxes, exise taxes, sales taxes, fuel taxes, etc.

 

As everyone knows, the US tax code encourages investments, and allows

depreciation of assets, even though those same assets may be appreciating

in value yearly. Or maybe some of you didn't know that?

 

I guess I fail to see the point on this attack....Trump wants to lower taxes for 

everyone...and quit spending federal money like a drunken sailor......that's

a good starting point.

 

Mrs. Clinton wants to keep giving speeches at $250,000 a pop and not see

anything inherently wrong wtih that.

Trump has created 1,000s of jobs from which taxes are withheld.

Re: Straight from the BBC

The point is apparently all your presidents for many years have shown their INCOME tax statements not all the other taxes they have paid but Mr Trump will not do that because??????????

 

Leaves everyone wondering what the reason might be.

 

Why do you thonk he will not show them?

Hey rusty steel, you have a nice bull out in your field that you privately would sell for $2500. One day some guy drives up and offers you $5000 for that bull. You're going to tell him no but he can have him for $2500, right????

What's even better, Bart? Is this "genius" hiring people then stiff them for any thing he thinks he can get away with! He hasn't had 3500 law suits filed against him because he is a "straight shooter"! He is a useless, con-man, who only thinks about himself, he is no patriot, with America's best in mind!!

Re: Straight from the BBC

Property taxes, sales taxes, fuel taxes are no doubt paid,, By the corporations that trump is invested in. Most of those taxes are business taxes and not personal income tax deductions, Now perhaps Trump does own some businesses out right, but I'll bet the large majority are owned by one corporation or another.

 

Corporate spending and corporate taxes are not personal expenses. So Trump does not personally pay many taxes.
