Friendly Reminder: Donald Trump Still Hasn’t Released His Tax Returns

It seems to be overlooked by the media these days, but Donald Trump still hasn’t released his tax returns – making him the first GOP nominee since Richard Nixon not to do so.

His opponent, Hillary Clinton, has released the last eight years of her tax returns, showing that she and her husband have paid $43,885,310 in federal taxes since 2007. In 2013 and 2014, the Clintons paid an effective federal tax rate of 35.4 percent and 35.7, respectively.

According to Hillary Clinton’s website, “[The most recently released tax returns] supplement the public release of the family’s tax returns from 2000–2006 during her 2008 campaign, returns from 1992–1999 disclosed annually during her husband’s time in the White House, and prior returns released by her husband’s presidential campaign. All told, the Clintons have made their tax returns public for every year dating back to 1977.”

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has failed to release any of his tax returns, raising questions about what he might be hiding.

On Monday, conservative columnist George Will raised some new questions about why the Republican nominee doesn’t want to disclose this information. Video:

Will said, “Perhaps one more reason why we’re not seeing his tax returns because he is deeply involved in dealing with Russia oligarchs and others. Whether that’s good, bad or indifferent it’s probably the reasonable surmise.”

Billionaire Mark Cuban also chimed in on Trump’s tax dodges in a series of tweets on Tuesday:

Hopefully, these questions will put renewed pressure on Trump to do what presidential candidates have done for decades and release his tax returns.

If he doesn’t, the media and voters should hold him accountable.
