Boy, that sure died quickly

When we all discovered Trump paid a higher percentage rate of taxes than Hillary, Obama and Bernie Sanders, the rhetoric sure died.

No, where are the last 10 years of returns?

I can imagine how you guys would have screeched like Harpies for every moment if Obama didn't release his. And don't lie, you know you would have.

Why won't he release them?

We know why, it's because he has a LOT to hide.

And you flaming hypocrites know DAMN well you'd have been hollering for ever day that Obama didn't release his. Hell, you hypocrites even wanted Obama's birth certificate... something that no presidential candidate has EVER needed to provide.
Yet you haven't asked to see Trump's birth certificate OR his tax returns.

I would honestly slit my throat before becoming a hypocrite with such non-existent integrity like you people.

Please tell us what far higher bracket Trump is in, and what bracket Hillary and Obama are in.

Surely you must know, since you were so quick with your "Duh?"

Please educate us tax illiterate masses as to how the tax brackets work. Does the word "marginal" mean anything to you?

I'll wait.

19. The highest non-marginal tax bracket is $418,000

 

That's where Sanders is. Trump exceeds that by orders of magnitude. But that's not the point. He won't divulge his returns.

Why won't he release them?

We know why, it's because he has a LOT to hide.

Ignorance such as yours is what makes people tell your kind to bug off.

You'll never be satisfied no matter what Trump does. He could release 10 years of taxes and you'd bitch that he didn't release 11.

It's really none of your business.

presumably "leaked" by Trump because that was the only year he paid any taxes.

If he wants to positively prove that he DID pay taxes, he could release his tax records.

So... why won't he do that?

It would be a bit, you know, delicate, if he released the returns for which he is being audited, and then the audit concluded that he had, you know, made mistakes when he filed ...

Entirely apart from what the returns might show, of course. Not just how much, but from whom, to whom, for what ...

29. In 2005, he was in the 3.3% tax bracket.

The only reason he paid any meaningful taxes is because of AMT, which he's promised to do away with.

Trump leaked that single year return.

... until there's an opportunity to avoid an issue by being pedantic.

Were it not for the AMT, Trump would have paid about 3% effective tax rate; $5.31 million in taxes on $152 million in income.
