Buffett Says He's Still Paying Lower Tax Rate Than His Secretary
Did Donald Trump Leak His Own Tax Returns?
Alan: No one knows if Trump released his own tax returns.
If he did, no one knows if his leaked returns are authentic.
On this latter point Trump could request that the IRS confirm their validity - rather like Obama releasing his long-form birth certificate which the Hawaiian registrar's office confirmed.
With this in mind, it would have been advantageous for Donald to release ten year old tax returns that represented an atypical year when Trump did pay a sizeable amount of federal tax (although he paid it at a 20% discount to the tax rate paid by middle class Americans).
