  • Federal court can't force IRS to release Trump's tax returns

    A federal judge on Friday said that the court could not compel the IRS to turn over President Trump’s tax returns. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) launched a suit against the IRS earlier this year after the agency refused to hand over the documents as part of an open-records request. Through the Freedom of Information Act, EPIC had sought Trump’s personal tax returns from 2010 to the present day and any documents that may reveal financial relationships with the Russian government or Russian businesses. However, personal tax forms are confidential. They can only be obtained if Trump himself gave...
  • Trump Should Never Release His Tax Returns (Absolutely Not)

    The Democrats seem to not want to relent on the desire to see President Trump’s tax returns. They will tell you it is all about good government or that it is tradition. We need open government. They think Mr. Trump is hiding something. I am advising him now he should just come out and say he isn’t turning them over – deal with it. Let me explain why. The biggest reason is that his tax returns are so complex that very few people could ever understand them. They are most likely littered with hundreds of entities that flow through to...
  • Maddow and MSNBC make fools of themselves on live TV

    The MSNBC host's "breaking story" releasing Trump's tax return on air breaks apart MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow went on Twitter Tuesday (March 14th) to hype her “breaking story”: “We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).” This no doubt sent the Left into a state of delirium. Then, Maddow followed up with another tweet, lowering expectations slightly: “What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.” That was not quite accurate either. What Maddow finally revealed on her show, after all of her self-promotion, were only two leaked pages from President...

  • “Client Copy”: Did Donald Trump Leak That Tax Return To Maddow?

    Wait. Look at that closer. What does it say on the second page there? “Client copy”? Yes. Client copy. So. Either Donald Trump leaked this himself, or someone with a “client copy” did. Given that there appears to be nothing embarrassing about the return whatsoever, and the world is laughing at Maddow, my money’s on Trump being the leaker. It’s probably the most favorable return for his narrative in existence. So: he leaks it, hoping this will end the controversy for good — and change the subject from all this CBO/TrumpCare talk.

Wretched Rachel set her sights on bringing the Donald down through the release of his tax returns. Instead, she ended up sinking her own leaky boat.
  • Flashback: Hillary Clinton Lies about Trump’s Tax Returns at First Debate

    03/15/2017 7:55:43 AM PDT · by davikkm · 15 replies
    What a disgusting person! Hillary Clinton told Americans during the first presidential debate in September 2016 that Donald Trump did not pay taxes. For one, she had no way of legally obtaining this information. And, two, it was a complete lie like so many other things she said. Hillary Clinton: First, maybe he’s not as rich as he says he is. Second, maybe he’s not as charitable as he claims to be. Or maybe he doesn’t want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he’ paid nothing in federal taxes.
  • President Trump's Tax Return Release: MSNBC is in Big Trouble

    Despite her assertion that there's a 1st Amendment protection given the media to publish the tax returns of someone they deem worthy of scrutiny, Rachel Maddow is woefully ignorant. Just because she plays a journalist on television doesn't make her one. The law is clear.

    RichmondTimes Dispacth ^ | 8/12/16 | from staff and wire writers
    Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton released her 2015 tax return on her campaign website on Friday. The campaign also released 10 years worth of returns for running mate Sen. Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton. The records show that during the past 10 years, Kaine and Holton paid a combined effective tax rate (described as federal, state and local taxes) ranging from 18.7 percent in 2009 – Kaine’s final full year as governor – to 29.1 percent in 2011. For the couple’s most recent return, for 2015, they paid a combined effective tax rate of 25.6 percent. For...

    Mike Huckabee on Thursday ripped Mitt Romney for calling on Donald Trump to release his taxes, accusing the 2012 GOP nominee of trying to "sink" the party's current presumptive presidential nominee. "I supported Romney, just as I will Trump, despite having serious differences with both," Huckabee wrote on his website, adding that he was "especially disappointed" in Romney over the issue. "He’s not only trying to sink his own party’s presumptive nominee, but he’s factually incorrect and he’s making the same unfair attack on Trump that was launched against him in 2012," he wrote. Romney has been calling on Trump...

    (CNN)Donald Trump said Wednesday that he plans to release his taxes when an IRS audit is completed, despite telling the Associated Press the previous day before that he would not release his tax documents. "In interview I told @AP that my taxes are under routine audit and I would release my tax returns when audit is complete, not after election!" the real estate mogul tweeted Wednesday, after Trump's critics, including Mitt Romney and other Republicans, who have urged Trump to make his tax returns available.

    For the first time in my life of fifty-one years, I still haven't received my tax refund because of the Obamacare portion of my taxes. I waited two hours on the phone in early September to finally talk to an IRS agent, only to be told I should give my situation another 60 days because the agency is so overwhelmed with Obamacare crap they are trying to process.

    I did my Income Taxes online last night. I got a surprise near the end. The tax program, I've used for years would not let me complete the process until I answered "Government Required" questions re: my family's health care. It began with: "Due to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act......" It seemed to indicate that if one does not have Health Coverage, it could hold up your Tax Return. That's your Government at work "for you"!

    WASHINGTON — In March 2012, the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s leading homosexual-rights group, posted the National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) confidential 2008 tax returns, including the names of donors. The disclosure of tax returns without permission is a felony, and NOM quickly cited evidence that allegedly pointed to an Internal Revenue Service official as the likely source of the confidential data. But a year and a half later, after repeated inquiries elicited no satisfactory response from the IRS, NOM has filed a lawsuit demanding answers and damages. “Our confidential tax returns were disclosed to the Human Rights Campaign, which...

    The majority of Americans have now filed their taxes. And the majority of Americans have done so incorrectly. There is one mistake, in particular, that lots of people made: They bought tax-free things online or in another state — and they failed to pay tax on their purchase in their home state. It's called a use tax. As far as I can tell, accountants and tax lawyers are some of the only people who pay it. Forty-five states have a use tax. About 1.6 percent of the taxpayers in those 45 states actually pay the use tax. So I figured...

    Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) set high stakes in an offered “deal” with President Obama on Friday. Obama’s campaign isn’t backing down on requests to see Mitt Romney’s tax returns — on Friday, campaign manager Jim Messina offered to stop asking if he releases five years' worth — but the freshman Florida congressman had a counteroffer for Obama. “Show us your sealed college records and Operation Fast and Furious White House memos, and we will all show you our tax returns,” West wrote on his Facebook page Friday. It’s not an original offer; businessman and Romney supporter Donald Trump has been...
