On Trump: Lack of taxation and a few official allegation towards him!
Another day and another allegation as the Presidential Candidate for the Republican Party doesn’t give to craps about Transparency and Accountability, that might be because his own operation is so shoddy and snobbish, while using shell-corporations and tax-havens to skim the United States tax-man out of money. The So-Called Billionaire is proving more questionable behaviour in both his Trump Organization and his Trump Foundation. That is vivid and direct acts of misbehaviour, even if legal still be questionable for his ethical acts of skimming the state of money through tax-codes and tax-breaks that the ordinary citizen only could dream of. If a citizen did the same and tried to take the IRS on the walk of tax-evasion than they would be made example off and taken to court for cheating; only because he is wealthy and has lawyers defending his case the IRS let him of the hook like they have done to the Scientology Organizations too. A quack knows another quack. Here is some outtakes of three different cases, two court documents and the second is from one of the leaked reports on the Real Estate Tax in New York City State.
Tax Evasion Complaints against Donald Trump and Trump Organization:
Count 1 – Political Corruption:
“In summer of 2013, at a time when her office was reviewing complaints against Trump University and related entities, Florida Attorney General Pamela Bondi Personally solicited a campaign contribution from Trump” (…) “Weeks after Bondi solicited the contribution, on September 17, 2013, a political group backing Bondi’s re-election, called And Justice for All, reported receiving a $25,000contribution from The Trump Foundation. In its 2013 990-PF Information Return, the Trump Foundation reported making a contribution to Justice For All, although it listed the incorrect address for recipient of the $25,000 political contribution” (…) “By misappropriating the assets of the Donald J. Trump Foundation, and converting the assets of the foundation for his own personal use so as to promote his political agenda, Trump personally benefitted from the campaign contribution to And Justice for All. Because Trump converted and stole money from the Donald J. Trump Foundation, for his own use and benefit, he had a duty to report the $25,000 as income on his 2013 tax return” (IRS, 2016).
Count 2 – Failure to Report Income:
“In 2010, Richard Berlin, an Assistant Attorney General with the Texas Consumer Protection Division requested permission to file a lawsuit against Trump University, Trump and his business partners seeking more than $5.4 million in penalties andres titution related to fraud and deceptive business practices. The suit was dropped by the office of Texas Attorney General Gregory Abbott. Former Texas Deputy Chief of Consumer Protection John Owens said the case was strong and had been dropped for political reasons. In 2013, Trump contributed $35,000 to Attorney General Abbott in his campaign to be Governor of Texas. Gregory Abbott is presently the Governor of Texas. Trump has engaged in a pattern of corrupt influence peddling” (…) “By avoiding litigation in exchange for the payment of a bribe, Trump and The Trump Organization not only received a $5.4 million dollar benefit in that they avoided paying penalties and restitution, but they also received a valuable benefit in that they avoided the attorney’s fees and litigation costs that they would have incurred if the Attorney General’s Office had moved forward with the recommended litigation” (…) “There is probable cause to conclude that Trump and The Trump Organization did not report the $5.4 million benefit as income and that they did not pay taxes on this income because the payment itself was an illegal one and it is unlikely that Trump or The Trump Organization voluntarily disclosed these illegal acts to the United States government” (IRS, 2016).
Count 3 – Failure to Pay Tax:
“Trump oversaw the construction of the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in New Jersey. In constructing Trump Plaza, a $7.8 million subcontract was awarded to S & A Concrete. S & A Concrete was partially owned by Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno, the boss of the Genovese crime family. The Genovese crime family is part of “La Cosa Nostra” a notorious criminal organization originating in Sicily” (…) “Trump has also worked closely with other members and associates of organized criminal enterprises, including Danny Leung, Felix Sater, Salvatore Testa, and Kenneth Shapiro” (…) “Danny Leung, a vice president for foreign marketing at Trump Taj Mahal, was as an associate of the Hong Kong-based organized crime group 14K Triad” (…) “Salvatore Testa was a organized criminal who sold property to Trump in Atlantic City. Testa, a member of the Nick Scarfo crime family of Philadelphia, was active in drug dealing, extortion and murder” (…) “Felix Sater, was a partner and “senior advisor” to The Trump Organization from 2003 to2010. Sater has testified about his close relationship with Trump in opening the Trump Soho Hotel. According to the New York Times and the Washington Post, Sater has been convicted of money laundering, stabbing a man in the face with the stem of a Margarita glass, and participating in a “Mafia-orchestrated stock fraud scheme.” (IRS, 2016).
Vice News Complaints for release of Trump’s Tax Returns:
“On August 18, 2016, Plaintiffs, by and through undersigned counsel submitted a FOIA request to the IRS via fax for four categories of records: “any and all audits of Donald J. Trump’s individual income tax returns for tax years 2002 forward”; “any and all records mentioning or referring to audits of Donald J. Trump’s individual income tax returns for tax years 2002 forward”; “any and all requests by law enforcement agencies for copies of Donald J. Trump’s individual tax returns”; and “any and all records mentioning or referring to requests by law enforcement agencies for copies of Donald J. Trump’s individual tax returns.” (…) “5 24. As of the filing of this Complaint, Plaintiffs have not received a response from the FBI as to whether or not their request for expedited processing will be granted. COUNT I: VIOLATION OF FOIA 25. This Count re alleges and incorporates by reference all of the preceding paragraphs. All documents referenced in this Complaint are incorporated by reference as if set forth fully herein. 26. The IRS has failed to grant or even rule on Plaintiffs’ request for expedited processing. 27. The FBI has failed to grant or even rule on Plaintiffs’ request for expedited processing. 28. Plaintiffs are deemed to have exhausted their administrative remedies because over 10 calendar days have elapsed without a determination as to whether or not they are entitled to expedited processing” (United States District Court for the District of Columbia, 2016).
Property Tax for Donald Trump of 26th August 2016:
As of the man who doesn’t deliver Tax Returns at least I got some believable numbers on the man. Donald J. Trump in August owns the NYC: $102.62. By October 3rd the NYC to pay $95,334.15; the proposed Finance-Property Tax of 7th January 2016 he had to pay Zero in this one. His taxing rate for over 10 condos in New York we’re on the rate of 12.883% and the average assessed value of $322.297. As his annual property tax is the rate of $190.463 (NYC, 2016).
If you don’t find it interesting how the So-Called Billionaire is using his funds to bribe an Attorney General in Florida to subdue the Court Case on the Trump University. It was also funds taken from his private Foundation, the Trump Foundation that is supposed to be charity and not another branch of the Trump Organization to finance his operations and businesses. If used so it is corruption and fraud of the ones giving money to the charity! That is not something Trump wants to add on his already questionable CV and business record. He tried to do the same as he did in Florida and Texas, as a way to avoid litigation against the Trump University. That shows that he doesn’t care about the ones he scammed in the University case, as he only cares about saving face and avoiding true judgement on the case in the states.
The others are directly cases on his Tax, as proven that doesn’t want to pay taxes or avoiding to do; as even the Vice News have issued the courts to let him drop his IRS Tax Returns. The Other question the Vice has is that there no evidence of that Donald J. Trump is really under Audit as he claims and want the Authorities to drop evidence of so. If that would come by the case and by court orders than the American people would know who Trump really is and how describe his wealth and how he runs his companies. That would be a healthy way, as there are reports of tax-avoidance, using tax-codes to not pay and so on. This would be the proof of the real value and the ethical aspects of how he handled monies day-to-day.
We can also here see the reports going out how he describe and pay for a short time for his valuable real-estate in New York City. That proves the inequality and question if he has devalued his real-estate as it is very low taxes for such amounts of real-estate. If this is proof of the value he pays of this than the IRS together with New York City State should look into their Tax-Codes and make sure the wealthy real-estate owners we’re doing due-diligent. Peace.
