What Is Donald Trump Hiding in His Tax Returns?

List RulesVote up the things in Trump's tax returns that you think he wants to keep quiet.

Donald Trump's taxes have become a sticking point for people across the political spectrum: Democrats and classic conservatives want them released, alt-righters are cheering on Trump for refusing to release his tax returns, and regular Americans are trying to figure out what all of this means, and more importantly, what's in President Trump's tax returns? Wild theories abound, and while it’s likely that the craziest ideas probably aren’t true, there’s still a possibility that Trump is hiding a few damning tax practices in his IRS returns.

Why won't Donald Trump releases his tax returns? The real answer is probably closer to “he’s a smug, rich bully who doesn’t think rules apply to him,” but it would be a lot more fun (and less depressing) if his tax returns were full of donations from Russia and North Korea. For President Donald Trump, tax returns present the problem of exposing him for the huckster that he truly is. If he’s really as wealthy as he says, he would have released his returns months ago and not thought twice about the issue. Or maybe he’s worried that the American people will feel inadequate when we see how much money he really makes.

Vote up the things in Trump’s tax returns that you think he wants to keep quiet, and if you think there’s something nefarious hiding in The Donald’s tax returns not covered here – tell everyone in the comments.
