Eric Trump Says Father 'Absolutely' Paid Federal Income Tax


But the immediate continuation of his statement makes it unclear if he is actually talking about federal income tax or taxes in general. "If you could just put a button on this: Have you seen your father's tax returns?" "We pay a tremendous amount of tax as a company that is very very very different than Hillary Clinton who has lived off the government for the last 40 years", Eric Trump said.

I understand that this sounds very elementary and I'm certain there are details that would have to be applied to a final plan, such as the elimination of all income taxes for those living below the poverty level, etc. "Of course I've seen my father's tax returns", Trump said. These are three organizations that the legislators of New Jersey thought were important enough to offer each a place on tax returns for folks to make a donation.

Donald Trump is telling us how clever he is for avoiding federal taxation. The returns show that Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss that year, which tax experts agree could have allowed him to not pay any federal income taxes for up to 18 years.

"Of course, yes, absolutely".

Eric reiterated his claim that his company pays a "tremendous amount of taxes". I mean, have you seen - no, have you seen your father's tax returns?

"There's no question about it".

Trump used the tax code "just the way it's supposed to be used", Pence said.

"Will we see it?"

Blitzer then asked Eric about his father's failure to release his tax returns to the public, which Eric indicated that Trump would do as soon as his reported IRS audit has completed. We as a company also hire a tremendous amount of people, which leads to people being able to provide for their families, people being able to take care of their families, people being able to educate their children.

"We have no assets in Russian Federation", he said.

Almost all registered voters surveyed in the poll - 86 percent - say they see paying taxes as every American's civic duty, while 12 percent say that they see taxes as an unnecessary burden to be avoided.
