Clinton Campaign Admits Hillary Used Same Tax Avoidance "Scheme" As Trump
#1
So where is the outcry from the MSM?
All we get when it comes to Hillary is crickets from the media.
Hypocrites.



Quote:Well this is a little awkward. With the leaked 1995 Trump tax returns 'scandal' focused on the billionaire's yuuge "net operating loss" and how it might have 'legally' enabled him to pay no taxes for years, we now discover none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton utilized a $700,000 "loss" to avoid paying some taxes in 2015.
The Clinton Campaign was quick to jump on the leaked Trump tax filing with Robby Mook tweeting...

And Hillary following up, adding Trump "apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades—while tens of millions of working families paid theirs."


However, a look back at Hillary Clinton's tax returns from 2015 (here), proudly displayed by the campaign proving she has nothing to hide - shows something awkward on page 17...

While not on the scale of Trump's business "operating loss", Hillary Clinton - like many 'wealthy' individuals is taking advantage of a legal scheme to use historical losses to avoid paying current taxes.
As Bloomberg notes, this federal tax break is among the wealthy's most used avoidance schemes...


Quote:Those 1.1 million folks in the 1 percent, as measured by the TPC, have annual income that averages a little less than $700,000. The top one-tenth of that group, some 110,000 households, average about $3.6 million, according to Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the TPC.2
 
The middle of the pack, some 33 million people, have pretax income ranging from $45,000 to $80,000. The lowest one-fifth of taxpayers, a universe of about 47 million Americans, have income up to about $24,000.
 
Among the biggest of these givebacks, courtesy of the Internal Revenue Service (well, really Congress), are capital gains and dividends—these are the biggest way the wealthiest benefit.

In the words of Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, "this bombshell report reveals [Hillary Clinton's] past business failures... and may show just how long [Hillary Clinton] may have avoided paying taxes."



 So basically, Hillary used the same loop-hole as did Trump.

Yet Trump got crucified by the MSM when all he was doing was what many wealthy people do, take advantage of a legal scheme to use historical losses to avoid paying current taxes.



Quote:Finally, as we noted previously, the NYT itself is also perfectly happy to take advantage of the US tax to minimize the amount of money it pays to the government: in 2014 the company got a tax refund of $3.6 million despite having a $29.9 million pretax profit, an effective negative tax rate for 2014, which it explained was favorably affected by approximately $21.1 million for the reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions due to the lapse of applicable statutes of limitations.

Once again, the Left grasping at straws, trying to tear down Trump.
But while they are reaching, they might want to reach for Hillary too.

Oh so typical, Didn't you gef the memo that Hillary is basically untouchable and it is totally fine for her to criticise someone for something and then go and do it herself? Because it is ok if it is her. Would love to slap that constant smug look off her face. 

Trump needs to win, build that wall and bury Hillary under that wall.

I just do not know what people see in her.

There sure is no integrity or morals for #CrookedHillary, that is for sure.
Only a greedy, deceitful, conniving, power hungry politician is what I see.  tinysure

This is far-too close to the truth of today's society in general!
It's a sad day when those who seek the sofa-based truth from the internet and discussing
the pros and cons of the candidates for the Presidency, believe that reality comments from
one of them negatively sway their choice because it hurts their juvenile feelings.

And that's the fuel the current young generations run on, since words are the main
currency on the internet, those who know how to frame their views can 'alter' someone's
perception by playing on socially-accepted self-values.

It's an old game that's just been modernised, but if it's never been used on you before,
then it's new.

Rule 101. Everything has already been thought, said and done. It's just revamped!
