Ron Paul: Trump's Tax Returns Show Evil of the Income Tax• https://www.infowars.com, Ron Paul
The tax returns confirmed that, despite being one of the richest people in America, Donald Trump paid very little in federal income tax. In fact, in at least one year he paid under a thousand dollars.
Trump's success in minimizing his tax liability without ever being audited is surprising only to those who think IRS audits are mainly used to catch rich "tax cheats." According to data released by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Clearinghouse, in 2022 lower-income taxpayers were five and half times more likely than millionaires and billionaires to be audited! This is because low-income taxpayers cannot afford to hire top-notch tax attorneys and accountants to help fight the IRS, so they are more likely to give in to the agency's demands.
