The report – which Trump labeled “fake news” – says President Trump didn’t pay federal income taxes in 10 of the past 15 years.
Donald Trump paid $750,” the Biden campaign spotlighted in a tweet that showcased the 30-second spot.
According to the New York Times report, Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public, paid $750 in taxes to the federal government the year he was elected and $750 again his first year in office.
A lawyer for the Trump Organization, Alan Garten, also denied to the New York Times that the president paid such a small amount of taxes – saying in a statement obtained by Fox News that Trump "has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015.”
Over the past decade the President has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government," Garten said.
