    When asked about why he would not release his taxes, Trump said:

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/...of-tax-returns

    Mitt Romney lost the presidential race in 2012 because of his tax returns.


    "He waited 'til September to give 'em, just before the election. They made him look so bad. It was so unfair," Trump said of the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee on ABC's "This Week."

    "I actually think he didn't lose because of the 47 percent [comments]. I think he lost because of a couple of really minor items in a tax return, where he did nothing wrong. ... It is unfair."

    Trump, this year's GOP nominee, reiterated that he will release his tax returns after the Internal Revenue Service completes an audit, even though the agency has said he can make them public while an audit is underway.
    He doesn't want to take the risk of releasing his. It has nothing to do with the audits.

    “I don’t think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president,” he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. He’s the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    Conflicting stories coming from the White House about his returns. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/poli...dviser-n710511

    Donald Trump Will Not Release Tax Returns, White House Adviser Says

    Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, said Sunday that the president would not be releasing his tax returns, reversing months of repeated campaign-trail promises to do so after an audit is completed.

    Conway's comments came in response to a Whitehouse.gov petition with more than 200,000 signatures calling on Trump to release his tax returns. Any petition on the site that receives 100,000 signatures in 30 days receives a response from the White House; this petition reached twice that in two days.

    "The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns," Conway said in an interview on ABC's "This Week."

    Trump broke with decades of precedent during the campaign by becoming the first major party nominee since the 1970s to refuse to release his tax returns. He repeatedly cited an ongoing IRS audit in refusing to do so but said he would eventually release them when the audit was completed.

    But Trump and his allies have argued that his tax returns are irrelevant, a statement Conway made again on Sunday.

    "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care," she said.

    "They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like. And you know full well that President Trump and his family are complying with all the ethical rules, everything they need to do to step away from his businesses and be a full-time president."


    Both of Conway's statements are false — multiple polls showed a majority of Americans believe Trump should release his tax returns, including an ABC News/Washington Post survey out last week that found three-fourths of Americans believe he should release them.

    And a ProPublica investigation out Friday revealed that despite Trump's pledge to transfer control of his businesses to his children as part of an ethics agreement as president, he hasn't filed any of the necessary documents to do so in Florida, Delaware and New York.

    Conway Walks Back Statement on Trump Not Releasing Tax Returns: He’s Still Under Audit

    Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway is backtracking on a statement which suggested that President Trump is never going to release his tax returns, even after his IRS audit is finished.

    During a Sunday show appearance on ABC’s This Week, Conway was asked by George Stephanopoulos about whether the White House had a response to the “We The People” petition which demanded that Trump produce his tax information. Conway had this to say:

    “The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns. We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care, they voted for him.”

    As various media outlets took that to mean that Trump will never release his tax returns despite previous promises to do so, Conway took to Twitter on Monday to clarify:

    Kellyanne Conway ✔ @KellyannePolls
    On taxes, answers (& repeated questions) are same from campaign: POTUS is under audit and will not release until that is completed. #nonews

    You mean every year of the century he's under audit?

    Trump's tax returns have been audited by the IRS each year since 2002, the letter said, and Trump's tax returns between those years "have been closed administratively by agreement with the IRS without assessment or payment, on a net basis, of any deficiency," the lawyers stated.

    He has nothing to gain from releasing them, much like Obama had nothing to gain from releasing his college transcripts.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Exactly. Make no mistake - a little part of my cries every time I hit "New Posts" and see Trump Trump Trump. But if Trump isn't paying taxes, then good for him.

    Personally, I do not care about Trump's taxes- I am only interested in how he keeps his word.

    Have we seen his taxes yet?
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.
