1. Good question, and why are you a winner when you do not pay taxes?

Why would you allow such to seek the highest office in the first place?

4. Presumably

Because you don't have a giant loss carry forward from an unsuccessful business and desire to avoid prison.

5. But didn't Trump fake that loss?

The loss was on the part of the bankers and investors... somehow Trump managed to pass it off as his own... I think the IRS slammed shut that loophole shortly thereafter...

Of course all this could be answered if he would just release his tax returns...

6. No clue

I'm not privy to his tax filings.

I am curious to find out.

If I was just guessing, I suspect it was a legit loss. He is concealing it because he is not nearly as rich as he portrays himself.

12. I wouldn't call it a "dodge"

People who have businesses have "lumpy" income. Losses for four years and then money one. Basically a loss carryforward averages the income out.


If. Outer, whether trump used it correctly is the billion dollar question.

13. The allegation is that Trump claimed a massive tax deduction for losses he didn't actually incur

8. Because you are not a selfish asshole

and you want to contribute to this (partly) fine country!
You care about your fellow citizens.
And if YOU don't, you would get in trouble.

9. I still want someone to ask point blank.."Have your adult children seen your taxes?"

I still think there is something there that will piss his adult children off....
