What we know about Donald Trump’s tax returns

Donald Trump‘c tax refund were made public, putting the former president’s finances and business practices in the spotlight as he also faces calls to be criminally charged in connection with the January 6 Riot on the Capitol.

The partially redacted returns from 2015 to 2020 total nearly 6,000 pages of what a preliminary investigation appears to show were legal but creative accounting strategies to keep his federal tax payments as low as possible.

An accompanying commission report pointed to what it considered a pattern of questionable claims for professional expenses, charitable deductions, what may have been “disguised gifts” to his grown children and skillful use of New York real estate write-offs.

It was also revealed that Mr Trump has foreign bank accounts in China, the UK, Ireland and St Maarten and in his first year in office has paid more tax abroad than in the US.

The former president reacted angrily to the release of the declarations, warning that such a precedent would lead to “terrible things for so many people” and cause the division in the US to “get even worse”.
