Why would you ever owe money to someone who cooked the books and committed tax fraud to get those figures?

I thought you usually had to pay taxes before getting a refund, but I guess that's just how it works for us normal people.

Let Trump reimburse the City and the County before he sees a dime.

Give the cities that Trump owes because he skipped out on the bill first dibs on the money.

stating that the former president's refund would take away taxpayer dollars from Chicago public schools and other agencies to pay for it.

Typical trump behavior.

Jesus Christ our tax laws are abhorrent. There is no situation where billionaires should be getting anything back ever. Period. While you and me pay in up to our necks. fark this system.

It's property tax.  That's harder to get out of than income tax.

But he still 100% put incorrect values on things. They're saying this was reassessed as owing less tax, ergo they're saying it was worth less, and because Trump assets are built badly and maintained like shiate that may even be true, but rest assured that when that SAME building's value was figured into anything where a higher value helped him, he used (and never changed) the higher figure.

Give his financial reports an actual "forensic audit" given what's been alleged regarding his business practices in NY.

A rich, corrupt Democrat is helping a rich, corrupt Republican get more money from the government? Bipartisanship, our nation is healing.

He should be pleased. For Trump, that is a lot of money.

Lol just don't pay him.  It's what he'd do if he owed you.

If they end up having to give the refund, do i in pennies. Loose pennies.

You appear to be unfamiliar with how a bureaucracy works, and how guys like Trump manipulate them.  There's not some Democratic Chicago Boss figure sitting in some badly lit back office gleefully rubbing his hands together over how he got Trump.

How could I censor you? I don't work for the government. Even if I did, I still wouldn't, I would want the public to have the chance to laugh at your stupidity/

KCinPA: Opposing views


I don't laugh at you because you have opposing views, I laugh at you because you're f*cking stupid.

KCinPA: Authoritarian regimes anyway.


Like the authoritarian regime the Republicans are trying to put into place?

The funny thing is how many lawyers who were working on "property tax abatement" have ended up arrested.

The funnier thing is a number of them were alderman.

You can say Chicago is corrupt but at least we arrest the motherfuvkers every so often.

What about your crooked politicians?

This is the way the Trumps built their empire: grease the palms of the people who can make money flow from  government treasuries. Such easily-bought people can be found in abundance in places like Illinois, along with Trump's NY/NJ back yard, and Florida.

It's been going on since the 1930's, so maybe it juuuuuuuust might be relevant no matter how frantically you wave around the sin-absolving D talisman.

And had even one of these officials done the right thing in the first place, we'd never have known Trump's name in the first place - but that's not what happened, is it?

If they were sufficiently generous with such breaks, there's no way they'd charge Trump because that would end their lucrative hustle with everybody else they gave up the booty for. 

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: The funny thing is how many lawyers who were working on "property tax abatement" have ended up arrested.

Easy to say when the bench is so deep. Crooked politicians in Chicago are like shark's teeth: one falls out, there's another one right behind it. New face, same racket.

So if they were overvalued for tax purposes find out if Trump used this over-valuation to obtain financing.  Trump's usual playbook has been to undervalue for taxes and overvalue for loans.

Right.  If he's "owed" money for one instance, then he also broke the law misrepresenting those SAME assets to the bank and simultaneous with his refund, maybe should get criminally charged for fraud.
