On Reddit’s /r/esist subreddit they started getting excited. Then it happened, the tax returns were leaked.
Oh, what a disappointment!
Wait – let’s move the goalpost!
$38 million paid in taxes in 2005 – earned $150 million.
The documents show Trump and his wife Melania paying $5.3 million in regular federal income tax—a rate of less than 4%. However, the Trumps paid an additional $31 million in the so-called “alternative minimum tax,” or AMT. Trump has previously called for the elimination of this tax.
2005 was the year that Trump, a newly minted reality star, made his last big score as a real-life real estate developer, when he sold two properties, one on Manhattan’s west side and one in San Francisco, to Hong Kong investors, accounting for the lion’s share of his income that year.
I guess this settles it – Trump is rich, and Trump pays taxes. And Trump is a 4d chess master.
