Donald Trump ‘paid $750 in federal income taxes’ – BBC News

Donald Trump paid just $750 (£580) in federal income tax both in 2016, the year he ran for the US presidency, and in his first year in the White House, the New York Times says.

The newspaper – which says it obtained tax records for Mr Trump and his companies over two decades – also says that he paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years.
The records reveal “chronic losses and years of tax avoidance”, it says.
Mr Trump called the report “fake news”.
“Actually I paid tax. And you’ll see that as soon as my tax returns – it’s under audit, they’ve been under audit for a long time,” he told reporters after the story was published on Sunday.

“The IRS [Internal Revenue Service] does not treat me well… they treat me very badly,” he said.

  1. At this point it’s clear the majority of his supporters are now operating like mindless cult members. If he went up on stage and started helicoptering his willy, his cult members would instantly dismiss it as fake news.

  2. So the report from NY Times literally says in the article that he paid 5.2 million in income tax between 2016-2017. Why is this left out BBC?
