Polls: Hillary Tops Trump In Four Swing States

Polls: Hillary Tops Trump In Four Swing States

Hillary Clinton released her tax returns Friday. They also gave more than one million dollars to charity. The bulk of the couple's philanthropic gifts went, of course, to the Clinton Family Foundation. They paid an effective federal tax rate of 20.3 percent in 2015.

He has refused to make his filings public, saying they are under audit by the Internal Revenue Service and that he will release them once that review is complete. Trump has said that he's under an audit by the Internal Revenue Service and won't release his returns until that audit is concluded - which may not happen before the November 8 election.

"It's white-bread stuff. Hillary has been running for president for decades and her tax returns show it", said Joseph Thorndike, director of the Tax History Project at Tax Analysts and author of the "Politics of Federal Taxation" column for Tax Notes magazine.

How numerous Clintons' tax-filing maneuvers have you used on your returns?

"Hillary Clinton has turned over the only records nobody wants to see from her - the American public wants to see the 33,000 emails she deleted to obstruct an FBI investigation", said Trump spokesman Jason Miller.

For more than a year, both Republicans and Democrats have pushed the billionaire real estate magnate to back up his boasts about business acumen and charitable giving by publicly disclosing federal and state tax filings, a customary gesture of transparency for presidential aspirants.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, and other conservatives have said Mr Trump's refusal raises questions about his finances.

What's in Donald Trump's tax returns?

It's probably not helped by the fact that The Donald has dragged his feet on releasing his tax returns and now doesn't plan to do so until after the election.

According to public records, Mr Trump did not pay any income taxes in 1978, 1979, and 1984.

Clinton and her running mate, vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, released their tax returns Friday. Along with the returns release, the campaign put out a video of prominent Republicans asking him to put out the returns and questioning what he might be hiding in the returns - the true size of his wealth, his actual charitable donations (or lack thereof) and potentially questionable business associates.

The power couple reported earning $10.7 million in income in 2015, and claimed a tax liability of $3.6 million.

In contrast, Washington Post reporter, David Farenthold has been trying for months to find evidence that Trump gave any money to charity, and so far he has come up empty.
