There is a media frenzy surrounding Donald Trump’s tax returns which were illegally published to make him appear as one of the heartless one-percenters in this country who avoid paying taxes while the little guy has to pay up. But don’t we all wish we paid less in federal income taxes? So, what’s the difference?
Trump taking advantage of a tax law that has saved him millions has made him smart, just like he said. This hit from The New York Times and other mainstream rags hoping to paint Trump in a bad light isn’t working. What he has done on his tax returns doesn’t bother me at all. This is a total desperation move and is showing the American people find the media untrustworthy.
Here’s the bottom line: Do you know how much I wish I paid in federal income taxes? Zero, and I bet most Americans feel the same way.
The tax code is a disaster and everybody knows it. With such a complex system spanning pages upon pages of regulations aimed against us, you should find whatever laws the program allows for and exploit them to your benefit. Otherwise, they get even more of your hard-earned paycheck.
In fact, all Americans should be paying zero in federal taxes.
Tax law is too complicated and the NYT realizes that this will make people’s eyes glaze over figuring out that no laws were broken and that what he did kept his company that employs tens of thousands of people afloat. Even the NYT used the same tax code to not pay taxes.
The more we pay in federal taxes, the more the tape-worm like spending increases.
