Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declared a loss of nearly $916 million on his 1995 income tax returns according to reports from The New York Times, citing leaked copies of his tax records. According to the Times, the loss claimed by Trump was so large it would have allowed Trump to LEGALLY avoid paying federal income tax over an 18-year period.

The Times claims that Trump’s tax documents were mailed to one of its reporters last month with a return address from Trump Tower in New York City.  They claim to have confirmed the accuracy of the documents with Trump’s accountant at the time, Jack Mitnick. Mitnick’s name appears as the tax preparer of the tax filings.

The Trump campaign has issued a statement as of Saturday evening stating that the documents were obtained illegally.  The statement via an open letter calling the Times “an extension of the Clinton Campaign, the Democratic Party, and their global special interests. Mr. Trump is a highly-skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally requiredThat being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes, along with very substantial charitable contributions.”

Of course, the Clinton campaign weighed in via Hillary’s campaign manager, Robby Mook.  He states that it “reveals the colossal nature of Donald Trump’s past business failures and just how long he may have avoided paying any federal income taxes whatsoever.”

It’s funny that neither the Times nor Mook has seen fit to mention the Clinton Foundation – how that standard for a charity of the size of the foundation to distribute to charity would be roughly 65%, except the Clinton Foundation only donates roughly a measly 5%?  Where’s the Times on this topic? Hmm, I wonder??

The Times report also mentioned that tax experts found NO EVIDENCE OF WRONG DOING connected with Trump’s 1995 tax returns, though they are quick to point out that the large loss claim would most certainly have drawn the attention of the IRS.  Well, GEE genius!  Could that be why he claims to have been audited by the IRS so many times?   Or given that the IRS has been implicated in the targeting of conservative or Republican groups and individuals? IRS Commissioner John Koskinen is undergoing impeachment proceedings for lying under oath and impeding a congressional investigation.

During the presidential debate last week, Hillary blasted Trump for refusing to release his tax returns.  She speculated that Trump’s tax returns would show he paid little to federal income taxes and cited tax documents obtained by Politico that showed Trump had not paid federal income tax during at least two years during the 1990s because of losses he had taken.

Trump responded by saying “That makes me smart.”  I would have to agree.  Anyone that can get out of the morass of IRS tax code to keep the fruits of your labor in your pocket and not being squandered by the Federal government?  That indeed makes them smart. Trump went on to call Hillary out on her bull – stating that he would release his returns over the objections of his attorney – but only after Hillary released her 30,000 emails she deleted from her private server that she had deemed “personal.”

Due to provisions in the tax code that allow individuals to offset their personal income with losses in various partnerships and business ventures, Trump could have LEGALLY used his losses in 1995 to avoid incurring tax liabilities on as many as 3 years PRIOR and 15 years worth of FUTURE PROFITS.   Unlike Hillary?  Trump’s issues actually have a LEGAL and REASONABLE explanation!

God Bless.
