The news is all atwitter about Trumps taxes. Let’s put this in perspective: Trump was a business man, head of a huge corporation … dollars to donuts the only thing he did on his taxes was proofread and sign. (I base this assumption on personal experience because that’s my husband’s involvement in our 1040.) Trump chose excellent accountants and lawyers to work for him – IF they found enough loopholes so he didn’t need to pay taxes, I’m impressed and wonder if his team would like to help me with mine.
BTW, this article points to page 17 of Hillary’s own taxes and apparently she uses very similar – if not the same – tax loopholes. So, this could be another example of the pot calling the kettle black.
Was Hillary trying to make Trump angry with her accusation or just make him look like a tax cheat? …. If he had gotten angry, she would have had video proof of his temper / if he didn’t rise to the bait, she could put our ads claiming it was true… Win-win situation for her / Lose-lose for him.
IF, like Bank of America, he didn’t pay taxes, that’s a feather in his staff & investors’ cap…. Hear me out. IF his people found a way to avoid taxes, it should tell voters that IF he becomes president of our country, this tells me he would be savvy enough to appoint the right people to oversee the various aspects of running our country in a successful way.
Hillary has a history of hiring “cronies” … I haven’t seen her taxes, but was told that she donated huge sums to her own foundation and took a tax deduction for giving money to herself, so her deductions might be more questionable than his. I’ve also heard that her foundation donates less than 10%. Assuming these figures are accurate, it would seem to coincide with what the authors of Clinton Cash discovered, as they researched her complex pay for play history. You can watch the movie version of that for free here.
BTW, I am neither a republican nor democrat … my goal is to choose the best person for the USA… (On Thursday, September 22, 2016 our country’s population was estimated to be 324,648,061 …. am I the only one who wonders how in the heck we voters have ended up choosing between this pair?)
Last week, a friend, who was trying to figure out who to support. One thing she did was calculate which candidate would be best for her family’s budget. This is her assessment:
I compared Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s tax plan to see how it would effect me as a middle class tax payer. Here’s the breakdown using $75,000 of taxable income.
