So no, I doubt thats the reason.
He never said that, if he has, I'd really like to know how he avoids things like property taxes.

And before you start rambling that doesnt count, thats the first thing the left throws up when someone discusses the 50% that pay zero federal taxes...

He can sure release the tax years that are not part of the audit, my guess is he won't release a thing.
Earnings and net worth are NOT the same. He has lead us to believe NOTHING on his earnings, because they've never been discussed.

No one would know if thats true unless the left violates some confidentiality the IRS keeps. I wouldnt put it beyond the left to do something that low, but they could end it tomorrow, and no one would have any clue.

Isn't it ironic that many of the posters willing to give Trump a pass for not releasing his tax statements were also hopping mad at Obama for not releasing his college transcript?

It's not ironic, it's hypocrisy.

The tax returns aren't finalized or accurate until the IRS audit is completed. There's no point releasing tax returns until the IRS accepts them as accurate.

Not sure why liberals don't understand that.

Not sure why you post stuff that makes absolutely no sense.

Ok, what does matter?
They have no idea. They're angry at their own lives, need someone to blame, and there's no other candidate out there who's better at angry scapegoating than tantrum prone Trump.

You do realize that you can get no major construction work done in NYC and NJ (and other locations) without working with the mafia-controlled unions, no?

If his returns are even being audited...funny how he didn't get a statement from his CPA or Tax attorney confirming that there is an audit, huh?
