Ha. Knew it. IRS has some splaining to do!! Only one Trump tax return as president got mandatory

Audit

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2022/12/21/only-one-trump-tax-return-as-president-got-mandatory-irs-audit-report-says.html

KEY POINTS
Only one of Donald Trump's federal income tax returns began being audited by the IRS when he served as president, despite the tax agency being mandated to conduct such examinations, a House panel said in a new report.

And that audit for his 2016 return was not completed by the time Trump left office in January 2021, the report by the Ways and Means Committee found.

The report was released shortly after the Democrat-led panel voted along party lines to authorize the public release of redacted copies of Trump's tax returns in coming days.

There WAS no audit of T****'s taxes. Damn, that fucker just lies about everything.

And the rich get off without audits much of the time, while they audit low-income people FIVE TIMES AS OFTEN as the wealthy.

Just fucking makes me sick.

Mnoochin made sure the IRS did not light tRump's ample ass on fire. As Mnoochin headed the US Treasury - the IRS being under the Treasury bureau. He could dial up the IRS reminding them to act in the best interests of tRumpie, ie - no tRump presidential audits - no release of tRump tax returns - ignore any requests.

not making the Pig a liar when he kept saying he was being audited and couldn't release them. Then Moonchin sat on it for the rest of the Pig's admin.

How can this surprise anyone.

My in-laws got audited years ago. They were missionaries and made hardly any money at all. They were honest people that never did anything wrong. Of course they found nothing. But, they put them in so much un-needed stress. They still have no idea why they were flagged.

We knew tRump had the IRS in his back pocket for 7 years. I wonder if his loyal cultists who pay more in taxes will even hear about it and if they do will they make up some lame-assed excuse for his ongoing theft and crimes? I already know the answer. They will donate even more of their money to his grifting schemes and buy more "TRUMP IS GOD" bumperstickers and flags.

Did they all have enough time to be so corrupt at every turn No author will be able to document all trump crimes unless it's multi-volumed. One would be too heavy.

with Trumpians throughout and more were appointed after he was elected. They are still there and doing as much damage to government as they can, especially setting forces against hard-working, loyal civil servants and especially minorities and women.
Go back and check the actions the IRS was taking during the Obama administration and compare with those taken during the Trump administration. No agency escaped the MAGA infestation, including the heralded Intel community.

There wasn't and intel failure on J6, just a failure for those in charge (the Trump administration) to act.

which is one reason they had to process electronic returns in India

They routinely audit poor folks' and middle class returns but just didn't have the staff to tackle returns from rich guys. It's why they didn't pay taxes here, genreally speaking, or if they did, the percentage was laughably low.

One thing Biden has done is fund them.
