New York Times Bombshell Nothingburger: During the Period When Four of Trump's Businesses Notoriously Declared Bankruptcy, Trump Himself Suffered Losses and Paid Little Income Tax on the Money He Was Not Actually Making (Due to the Bankruptcies)

John Sexton digests the New York Times' bomshell report that when a man suffers four bankruptcies of major companies he owns, he's not making much if any money.

Sexton notes that the Times gets cagey about how they got these illegally-leaked documents. The Times claims they were from someone with legal access to the documents, as if legal access means "the legal right to release, without the taxpayer's permission."

Nice little soft-shoe there, Times.

Who had legal access to the information in Trump's returns? Is that the CPA or attorney doing his taxes during those years? Even assuming this person had legal access to the information, how is it legal to leak that information to the media? This Bloomberg primer on tax confidentiality suggests there are very few circumstances where a tax professional can reveal information without the express permission of the person involved. I'm assuming whoever leaked this information didn't have Trump's consent.

In any case, I'm not sure how much impact this is going to have. It's not as if the fact that his casino empire was a money loser was a secret until now.

Your stockbroker has legal access to money in your account, and limited permission to use it to buy and sell stocks on your behalf.

That doesn't mean he has the legal right to take all your money and give it to the New York Times.

Times deliberately deceives readers in trying very hard, and by convoluted, lawyerly language, to suggest that this leak is somehow legal.

But they want you trust their word about everything else they say.

The New York Times has a point, though: Should we trust the word of a business that loses so much money on a business deal? Should we trust the political judgment of a brain trust that loses a billion dollars on a single acquisition, for example?



By the way, there's also the consideration that taxable income is only partly correlated with actual income.

I saw the NYT spread on Trump's taxes. They are trying to turn it into a scandal. It's not a scandal. Trump is a real estate developer and real estate developers can almost always show losses. This is a total disinformation campaign that takes advantage of people not knowing the tax code.

...

I had dinner with a real estate developer a couple of years ago. He told me his goal was to build a building and only have it 60% occupied. That way, he could take a gigantic tax loss. So, like most things Trump, this is all about nothing.

...

When you lose money, you can roll the losses ahead. They call this tax loss carryforward. If you are an entrepreneur with a variable income you become infinitely familiar with this provision of the tax code. It's never a goal to lose money, but when you do itís nice that you can roll it forward as you dig out from the loss.

If memory serves, when Twitter and FaceBook-approved Conspiracy Theorist Rachel Maddow announced her BLOCKBUSTER! (nothingburger) Trump tax leak, it turned out that much of the losses in some years was just carried-forward losses from earlier YUGE years of losses.

The idea of this is simple: Let's say in one year you are absolutely wiped out. You lose one hundred million, and pay no tax.

The next year you earn $100 million.

How should you be taxed? You weren't taxed that one year you lost $100 million. But should you pay normal tax rates for the next year -- say, $50 million in federal taxes.

Or would a rational tax code look at these two years together and say that really, for both years combined, you actually made about zero dollars cumulatively?

Legislators have decided taxing half your money that second year wouldn't be a fair representation of your actual multiyear-term income, and so they let you take the losses from that one year and carry them over to reduce your income in later years.

But you know, we're in the End Times now, the Time of Chaos, and Democrats and their media masters (yeah, it's the media calling the shots now, especially social media tech monsters) will decide that following the law is now against the law.

14 The time period covered was when there was a real estate slowdown and EVERYBODY was losing money.

A lot of ppl in real estate went under and never came back.

Don also said that that was the way the game was played you spent money and lost money and then wrote it off on your taxes to stay on top.

All legal. All legitimate deductions and Mr. Trump managed to keep himself in business with a comfortable roof over his head until Real Estate started back up.

They make a big deal out of him claiming lost money. Big deal. Lots of people lose money on investments. It's how this country works.

The New York Times needs to DIAF they really are a waste of good trees.

40 I was pointing out to the idiots on the Twats last night that it is, literally, a part of Trump's schtick that he lost everything and came back. You can tell this by subtle things like one of his books being called The Art of the Comeback.

Other people were sending the NYT copies of the stories that the NYT ran about Trump in the mid to late 90's talking about his rallying back from a billion dollar hole.

That's when it hit me. These idiots who think they know so much about how to run America have no familiarity at all with American pop culture. None.

Trump has been a part of American pop culture for, what, 40 years? That's why the but but but he's so immoral wailing by French et al doesn't move the needle. Yes, Donald Trump is a womanizer. His name is nigh to synonymous with it. This has been known longer than some of the people crying about it have been alive.

Oh noes Trump is not a great businessman, why, he lost money running a casino! My dudes, that joke was played out in 1995. And yet, for being such a terrible businessman, he sure as hell seemed to be able to leverage his name into a hit tv show. But it's all marketing! Yes. And marketing is a business.

But Trump is just so so so gauche! What gave it away, the gold plated everything? The giant TRUMP on Trump tower? Really, hadn't noticed that in any of the hundreds and hundreds of stories about it over the years.

The NYT really seemed to think this story was news rather than something that is part and parcel of American pop culture. Trump lost so much money that he told Marla that if the bum over there had a nickel he was richer than Trump. And then Trump went out and made more money and made the banks his bitches by owing them so much they had to restructure. Whether any of that is true is irrelevant. It's part of American lore.

And those idiots had no fucking clue.

Our Betters, ladies and gents.

They just hate it that electing Trump was us playing their game. They wanted us to play by The Rules that Republicans are supposed to play by. Well, people got fed up with that because as is obvious everyday, the Democrats don't play by The Rules.

They want to hold Barr in contempt for nothing ... how about Holder/Lynch/Mueller ... the fake attack on Trump with contrived evidence, and all the left can do is scream louder at Barr. Holder/Lynch/Mueller ran a coup (and Rosie is probably central to it, per John Solomon's last interview with Judicial Watch).


They are counterattacking again, in advance of the coming (we hope) indictments. The first major counterattack was against Trump, to forestall and mitigate the indictments coming (hopefully) against Hillary's Cartel. "She should be locked up"

158 40 I was pointing out to the idiots on the Twats last night that it is, literally, a part of Trump's schtick that he lost everything and came back. You can tell this by subtle things like one of his books being called The Art of the Comeback.

Other people were sending the NYT copies of the stories that the NYT ran about Trump in the mid to late 90's talking about his rallying back from a billion dollar hole.

That's when it hit me. These idiots who think they know so much about how to run America have no familiarity at all with American pop culture. None.

Trump has been a part of American pop culture for, what, 40 years? That's why the but but but he's so immoral wailing by French et al doesn't move the needle. Yes, Donald Trump is a womanizer. His name is nigh to synonymous with it. This has been known longer than some of the people crying about it have been alive.

Oh noes Trump is not a great businessman, why, he lost money running a casino! My dudes, that joke was played out in 1995. And yet, for being such a terrible businessman, he sure as hell seemed to be able to leverage his name into a hit tv show. But it's all marketing! Yes. And marketing is a business.

But Trump is just so so so gauche! What gave it away, the gold plated everything? The giant TRUMP on Trump tower? Really, hadn't noticed that in any of the hundreds and hundreds of stories about it over the years.

The NYT really seemed to think this story was news rather than something that is part and parcel of American pop culture. Trump lost so much money that he told Marla that if the bum over there had a nickel he was richer than Trump. And then Trump went out and made more money and made the banks his bitches by owing them so much they had to restructure. Whether any of that is true is irrelevant. It's part of American lore.

And those idiots had no fucking clue.

179 I love that the demonrats have held Barr in contempt. They did the same to Holder over Fast and Furious and in addition the Magic Negro invoked Executive Privilege on any and all of the information about that failed scam. If you look about you, Eric Holder is out trying to raise funds to defeat Trump. So tell me again how much this contempt citation is going work?

Posted by: Old Blue at May 08, 2019 07:59 PM (gEvQ8)

180 And the DOJ recommended that Trump declare the Mueller report and all the investigation files are covered by executive privilege.

So he did.

Now they can go to the SCOTUS where there are loads of precedent for them to follow.

Meanwhile back on the House Floor, Pelosi (who's face is looking like an old boot up close) is getting ready to take a vote on impeachment but she's pushing back a bit cause like the lack of obstruction charges in the Mueller Report, they're not as clear cut as CNN wants you to believe they are.

182 you know, the funny thing about the chicom decision to reneg is that they are likely relying on the mfm and their deep state sources / traitors for their information.

their trusted sources are likely sincerely feeding them the wrong information that the chicom reneg will cost Trump the election.

Posted by: yankeefifth at May 08, 2019 08:01 PM (MTjB1)

183 What's funny is that Congress has no enforcement arm.

Well actually, they do. It's the DOJ. So if the DOJ says "No we're not arresting our Attorney General or turning over documents that by law can't reveal GJ testimony or proceedings". What can they do?

Stand there and say: "What me worry?".

184 Belittle the End Times if you must, but, from where I sit, everything appears to be right on schedule.


Jesus said that he could not tell us the time of his return, but he could give the season. He said that the generation of the fig tree - those alive when Israel again became a nation - would not pass from this Earth without him returning. Israel became a nation again about 2 weeks after I was born. Given a generation is about 120 years, that puts a time frame not much after 2068 - although life extension technology could stretch that out, or if we get BernieCare killing all the old people off, maybe AOC is right about it being 12 years from now.

186 These are old tax returns. If the last five years were released, they might reveal items the IRS completely missed, like "Extortion payment to V. Putin" or something.

Also the names of any business associates or charities that should be harassed. That too.

"By refusing to admit to themselves the nature of that which they are accepting; the people who support plans specifically designed to achieve serfdom, but hide behind the empty assertion that they are lovers of freedom, with no concrete meaning attached to the word ... They expect, when they find themselves in a world of bloody ruins and concentration camps, to escape moral responsibility by wailing: 'But I didn't mean this!'"

211 Along with the Apprentice opening, Klavan played an interview with Ivanka, from ages ago (90s, IIRC). She talked about walking with her father, who pointed to a homeless guy, and said "He's got billions more than I do." She said she was about 9 when that happened.

218 Personal capital gains are treated the same way. Lots of people are still putting losses from 2008 against new gains they make ah year.

There is absolutely nothing mysterious about this. Also, I think the New York real estate market was off around 40% during those lean years. Lots of businesses larger than Trump's didn't survive, but he did.

223 I believe until recent years corporations could actually carry *back* the losses to a prior year when it had income and apply for an immediate refund.

One idea for allowing "carrybacks" was that the cash infusion from the refund would help the corporation survive a rough spell.
