Donna over her all the way, and Joan wouldn't be my first choice from Mad Men, but Pio is crazy.

Slackers at work. Slackers who go out of their way to be negative with those around them. I really don't get how these people work. Doesn't time it self feel like an eternity when your sitting on your ass playing solitaire from 9-5? I would think that at some point, you would want to actually do some work to make the time go by faster.puzzled.gif I also don't understand why anyone would complain about others speaking their native tongue rather than English, but then proceeds to speaking Spanish???????

So it sounds kind of like a richy-richpants thing if his fancy taxes allow him a situation where he can deduct 1:1 until it comes to zero for the year (and then keep carrying over).

And real estate developers have a lot of unique ways to claim losses that aren't available to other businesses or individuals (especially in the wake of his first big wave of bankruptcies).

But hey, he won't release any filings, so we can only speculate....but the optics of not paying income taxes for well over a decade look pretty bad to the voters, especially if people are going to make comments complaining about the share of non-rich people who don't pay income taxes (but...doesn't that mean they are smart?)

Devil is in the details but I think if you're taxed on the way up you should get deductions on the way down.

Part of the real estate thing is I know they were incented to give some huge acreage for easements or something with their golf courses qualifying for something special. I can tell you I sure as hell enjoyed my huge tax return last year when I sold my rental house and it triggered all the stuff that had been building up on my personal books.

And I still have some capital loss I've been carrying forward for several years and have several years more of it.

Not commenting on optics and really who the fuck knows what resonates this election cycle? Was pretty stupid in any normal political cycle to admit you paid no taxes and that it shows you're intelligent. While I generally agree with it that sure won't resonate with Joe Lunchbucket.

BTW, didn't the Clintons use the same deductions around White Water or something?

And speaking of "optics", if Trump wanted to get credit for being a tax genius who was going to reform the system, he probably should have released his records and come out in favor of reform before it got leaked.

The NYT article even preempts that claim by noting that Trump had lawyers doing all this stuff and he didn't even bother to ask questions. There's no reason he ought to know all the details, but it negates the whole idea that he's a unique genius of tax code knowledge.
