6 Years Of Trump Tax Returns Now Public

On a historic day in Washington, the House Ways and Means Committee released six years of former President Donald Trump’s taxes to the public. The release of the documents, which had been the subject of much speculation and controversy for years, confirmed what everyone had suspected; Trump paid little to no taxes in those six years.

According to the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) report, the former President paid $750 in 2017, a combined $1.1 million in federal income taxes in 2018 and 2019 and no taxes in 2020. In addition to the findings, Trump carried a yearly loss, ranging in size from $23 million in 2018 to $105 million in 2015.

The release of Trump’s taxes marked a significant milestone in the ongoing investigation into the former president’s financial dealings. For years, Trump had refused to release his taxes, citing ongoing audits and legal disputes. However, the House Ways and Means Committee, led by Chairman Richard Neal, had been fighting for the release of the documents, arguing that it was necessary for the public to have a full understanding of the president’s financial interests.

It is significant to note that Trump is the only president or candidate running for office since the inception of the presidency that has refused to disclose their personal and business tax returns.

The decision to release the taxes was met with both support and criticism. Some praised the committee for its transparency and commitment to holding the president accountable, while others argued it was a political ploy to damage Trump’s reputation. One that he did not require any help doing by the House Ways and Means Committee.

Regardless of the motivations behind the release, there is no denying the significance of the documents. They provide a glimpse into the inner workings of the former president’s finances and offer valuable insight into his business dealings.

As the investigation into Trump’s taxes continues, it is likely that more information will come to light. For now, the release of the documents marks a significant step forward in the effort to hold the former president accountable for his fraudulent financial actions.
