Bernie spouts off about the “Panama Papers”, but still hasn't released his own Tax Returns!!!

I'm not inferring that Bernie is involved with tax evasion. But how does he have the nerve to talk about hidden tax issues when he is hiding his taxes?????

The Daily News in NYC will have a field day with this leading up to the NY primary.

1. Normally I'd love such irony. Not today.

 

Maybe he thinks he'll get away with it? IDK, but I hope the press isn't as naive as Sanders thinks they are.

3. Bernie Sanders has only released 2014

http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/web/presidentialtaxreturns

None of the back years - and nothing for 2015. But none of the candidates at the link released their 2015 yet that I can see.


Looks like Sanders is in the top 6% and received $4172 back from the IRS in 2015.

But he needs to release a few years back. Wouldn't the people of Vermont want to know at some point?

7. We just mailed in our

own 2015 returns over the weekend. April 15 won't occur until next week.

It is unsurprising that no one has released 2015-related information yet. So I won'f slam anyone for that.

I can, however, be very unhappy about his general lack of transparency AND extremely unhappy about Bernie's lying about having released tax forms publicly when he has not.

Already reinvested our return (some into a Roth IRA) so then we had to refile.

20. Tax returns are actually not due until April 18 this year (April 15 is Emancipation Day)

I sent mine in about a week ago.

His "return" for 2014 is 2 pages, and 2 pages for Vermont.

Clinton's is 44 pages!

Bernie, where are the schedules? What's hidden in that $56,000 deduction number?

16. To be fair (why, you ask? I don't know!) all candidates' tax returns for 2015 aren't due...

...for another two weeks.

But he certainly can release his for 2013 and before. Why hasn't he?

where are the schedules which show what you make and how you make it? The schedules which show how you calculate your deductions?

That's kind of funny eh? I wonder - when he will release them?

The top 6% of income earners can be a funny bunch.

He's probably raked in over a hundred million fromthose cretins for the last decade.

12. Or maybe he just never donates a penny to charity even though he is in the top 6%...

thanks to our tax dollars. We already know he is incapable of earning any money in the private sector. But what are his investments like. Is he earning interests from Fossil Fuel companies. Does he have investments through Wall Street banks?

And why can't he release his taxes for the past decade? What is he afraid of??? And doesn't this disqualify him from even discussing a tax scandal? Maybe he should come clean before he calls anyone else dirty!

...of deductions!

11. and here I thought the deadline for 2015 taxes was April 15th ....

 

.... 10 more days left before the deadline to file one's taxes with the IRS.

Doubtful about your statement about the NY Daily News. It's pretty evident that they don't like Hillary and why would they even hound Bernie about taxes before the IRS filing date for 2015 taxes has even passed?

Gimme a break!

PS: This (native) New Yorker predicts your candidate loses New York State to an embarrassing degree.

18. Really? What about 2008? 2009? 2010?...all the way thru 2013 and full disclosure of 2014???

And will he disclose 2015 on April 15th? I doubt it. Don't hold your breath about the NYS primaries. Only Democrats can vote and Bernie couldn't win a closed state if his life depended on it.

29. What about the fact that Bernie SAID

he had released previous tax returns when he had NOT?

I'm not one of those excited about the 2015 taxes. As you point out, the filing date is still in the future. But as someone who has a genuinely long list of deductions that STILL don't total anywhere near the $56,000+ that Bernie claims, I'd like to know more about what those deductions are. I'll allow that they are likely legitimate but why not tell us? Especially when he holds others to a standard that he is apparently NOT willing to meet.

I'm not a native New Yorker. But I believe that your prediction is overly optimistic for your candidate, especially now that there is a debate scheduled.

Hillary has so far demonstrated superb command of the issues in every one of these debates and I expect her to do more of the same. Bernie is very fuzzy on practical details for implementing his ideas. That is becoming clearer to more undecideds as the time goes on.

And New York runs a closed primary.

corporations not paying their fair share, he needs to stop pandering.

was just as "creative" with the family finances as she was with Burlington College's before she got booted out.
