Donald Trump 'paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017'

Donald Trump 'paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017'

Washington, Sept 28(UNI) According to a report by The New York Times on Monday President Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal income tax both in 2016, the year he ran for the presidential office and in his first year in the White House.
According to the paper, its report is based on Trump's and his companies tax records which its says it managed to obtain for over two decades, which alleges that he paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the last 15 years.
NYT says the records reveal "chronic losses and years of tax avoidance".
In response Mr Trump called the report "fake news", adding "Actually I paid tax. And you'll see that as soon as my tax returns - it's under audit, they've been under audit for a long time," he told reporters.
"The IRS does not treat me well… they treat me very badly. You have people in the IRS - they treat me very badly," he said.
Mr Trump has faced legal challenges for refusing to share documents concerning his fortune and business. He is the first president since the 1970s not to make his tax returns public, though this is not required by law.
