Looks like Trump didn't pay federal income tax for 15 years... what happens now?

At this point it's just conjecture. I always assumed he didn't pay fed income tax. Anyone who is an active participant in a real estate enterprise has a good chance to do the same. This assumes that his great wealth is only on paper.

This will be the big story for the talking heads on the sunday funday shows tomorrow. Say something like this would cause Trump to drop out (doubt he ever would)...would the replacement have a chance?

Losses carried forward could only offset an equal amount of gain. Profits beyond that could still be taxed. Without current returns, they're only guessing. But if I were guessing, I'd guess he is able to generate plenty of other paper losses.

The article I read said that the 900 million loss came as a result of his casinos. Trump has always bragged that he walked away from the casinos with over 100 million in profits. He's either lying to the public or his Uncle Sam.

I'm sure Trump is simply taking advantage of the insanity of our tax code. He doesn't sit down and do his own taxes, he has a fleet of CPAs whose silk sole mission is to minimize his liability.
