(USA Today)   No, there isn't a $750 "filing fee" for the IRS. And yeah, I am sure everyone already knew this, but still, here we are   (usatoday.com) divider line

He probably got told there's a fee by the accounts who have to charge him for his bullshiat illegal tax activities.

1. Trump wants you to believe he paid a lot of taxes which he will not reveal to you.
2. Trump will force the IRS to create a filing fee shortly.

Trump's referring to a $750 filing fee he paid in iTunes gift cards to an IRS agent who called him.

That's the long and short of it.  If the news has it wrong, all he has to do is release his returns.  Just like Obama released his birth certificate.

Trump just signed an EO to create Schedule F employees. In other words, loyalty over anything else. He already "bumped" a bunch of government employees pay by removing their SS contributions... This shiat is happening. All you farkers voting for Trump have no idea what kind of dictatorship he is creating behind the curtain. You will regret this.

If Trump paid a $750.00 filing fee on his income taxes, he's an even worse businessman than we already knew him to be.

Trump made my right bicep has grow 4 inches in diameter since 2016 due to all of the sarcastic jerking-off motions.

So much for my witty response that I was going to make.
 
2020-10-26 11:09:33 PM  
That was so obviously a lie that I didn't even consider calling it out. No one interested in reality could possibly believe it was true.

No, everyone does not know this. There's a segment of people who'll believe almost anything you tell them about their taxes, if you're from their preferred party. There's actual research on this. It's a real thing. "Did law X raise your taxes?" Actual percentage of people who saw increased taxes: 2%. Percentage who reported their taxes went up as a result of law X: 30%. Almost all Republicans. That sort of thing.

I 100% guarantee you a double-digit percentage of US adults do not know that the IRS does not charge a $750 filing fee.

The Canada Revenue Agency does that too. I mean, whatever. But why do they make me buy them from different gas stations? The grift from Big Petroleum as the middle man is what gets my goat.

Hold my beer.

Seems like this means Trump told a lie. Please give me a minute to regain my composure, this idea is a lot for me to take in.
 
2020-10-26 11:18:57 PM  
Wait -- so he's arguing that he's actually a bigger tax cheat than he is? That not even the $750 is legit taxes?

I was told there'd be no math.
 
2020-10-26 11:28:33 PM  
Trump's accountant told him he paid a $750 filing fee, and there was no way around it. Trump's expectation was that he pay zero, and was pissed that he had to give up $750.
 
2020-10-26 11:28:49 PM  
He doesn't know how anything works.

That's most of his lies.  Yet I know people who constantly feel the need to debunk them in Slack channels that are 100% anti-Trump.

Weird, I've never had to pay filing fees when I do my taxes. Is this something only Trump is forced to do?

He did say he's treated very unfairly by the IRS.
 
2020-10-26 11:48:23 PM  
His accountants used the filing fee to get paid upfront. Donnie Deadbeat is a known entity...

Ishkur: Wait -- so he's arguing that he's actually a bigger tax cheat than he is? That not even the $750 is legit taxes?


No, see he's so fiscally responsible that he paid 2 years of taxes in advance. The $750 filing fee was a polite way to remind the IRS what a swell guy he is.
 
2020-10-27 12:06:43 AM  
I see none of you use TurboTax.
 
2020-10-27 12:20:23 AM  
Him confirming he paid $750 those years as what he thinks are filing fees sure seems like he's confirming the NYT has his tax returns.
 
2020-10-27 12:27:22 AM  
My wife the tax accountant about choked laughing hearing of this filing fee during the debate.

You're right, of course, but doesn't anyone who ever paid taxes know there's not a filing fee?

Oh, I think I may have just figured out the problem.

Personally, I've never paid taxes and that's why I vote Republican - to keep the taxes that I don't pay to a minimum!

This.  He is a bullshiatter in the Harry Frankfurt sense of the term.

fusillade762: He doesn't know how anything works.


Are we sure all of his kids are his kids?

Troy McClure: Him confirming he paid $750 those years as what he thinks are filing fees sure seems like he's confirming the NYT has his tax returns.


Yep.  There's definitely a return that shows a measly $750 on the "amount you owe" line, and this is a pre-emptive lie before the actual return gets leaked.
 
2020-10-27 8:47:11 AM  
So he saying he paid no taxes at all, rather than $750?

arrogantbastich: He probably got told there's a fee by the accounts who have to charge him for his bullshiat illegal tax activities.


Maybe his accountants are Nigerian royalty?
 
hej
2020-10-27 10:16:32 AM  
Bullshiat subby, the IRS just came to my house yesterday to collect the $750.
 
2020-10-27 12:01:58 PM  
Comon', people. That $750 was for Pre-Paying his taxes, didn't anyone see the debate? Sheesh.
