You're just like Donald Trump and his tax returns!
I backed them up.. You are claiming they are wrong.. its up to YOU to back up your claims..

Hows it feel to be like Clinton? living in denial, running around making claims, that just cant be substantiated.

Your evidence that "backed up" your numbers are like if Trump wrote "Trump is worth $100,000,000,000,000,000.00" on a napkin and claimed it as proof that he is worth $100,000,000,000,000,000.00.

And there is certainly no law saying he should or must.


I hope he doesn't. His taxes are between him and the IRS. If you suspect something, report it.

From that "income'" you can not deduce his total wealth around $70 billion since his stock holdings DO NOT SHOW on the return..

Stop embarrassing yourself.
That's not the money Buffett reports. Maybe you should try not to "embarrass yourself" and Google the information. Try spelling Buffett with double TT to get more accurate results.

Warren Buffet could report $100 million a year in income, and it still wouldnt reflect a networth..

maybe you should learn how to do basic taxes..

I know how to file taxes. I also know how to use Google.

Finally I can spell Buffett, you obviously can't.

I wonder if Trump isn't releasing them because he could be accused of tax fraud or tax evasion.

Since when are candidates expected to release tax returns? Should they also release medical records and sex tapes? Perhaps we should demand MRI's and psychological evaluations? How about all of the records kept by government Thought Cops? Surely we should have access to all divorce records and the scholastic records of their children. How about a publicly available colonoscopy? We should certainly know about hemorrhoids, polyps, and such.

Only a very small percentage of the public is qualified to analyze tax statements. Trump doesn't do his own taxes. I'm sure he employs several tax attorneys and CPA's.

Our tax code is a 70,000+ page leviathon. No sane person claims to understand more than a small percentage of it. Canada has the second worse tax code with over 50,000 pages.

Do we really want the script readers with our mainstream media spouting off about the tax returns of candidates?
