What are "personal taxes"?

That Trump's people say he has been paying? Sales taxes? On all the crap he buys for his golf clubs & hotels--and then books them full of people seeking favors?

I think he better call.....

3. The NYT article speculated about what they might mean

Personal tax is presumably what you owe on your personal income tax return, the form 1040 individuals file. One example of possible weasel wording: Trump owed a million dollars in personal income tax but the tax was offset by a tax credit for 20% of Millions spent renovating an historic building, the DC post office converted to a hotel. The NYT thinks Trump’s lawyer may be claiming that he “paid” the million dollar tax by applying the tax credit against the liability. No normal human would call that “paying” the tax.

Trump can easily tell his accountants to release just page 1 and page 2 of his form 1040, which would reveal the truth.

4. Basically, it's anything the Orange Blunder owes anybody.

That they won't accept associating with his greatness to write off.

(See: Contractors, Event Planners, Doctors, Lawyers, His own kids/relatives, etc... So, anyone who wants their moneys he's ever skipped town on without paying his tab.)
