    Documents obtained by ProPublica show stark differences in how Donald Trump’s businesses reported some expenses, profits and occupancy figures for two Manhattan buildings, giving a lender different figures than they provided to New York City tax authorities. The discrepancies made the buildings appear more profitable to the lender — and less profitable to the officials who set the buildings’ property tax.

    For instance, Trump told the lender that he took in twice as much rent from one building as he reported to tax authorities during the same year, 2017. He also gave conflicting occupancy figures for one of his signature skyscrapers, located at 40 Wall Street.

    <snip>

    A dozen real estate professionals told ProPublica they saw no clear explanation for multiple inconsistencies in the documents. The discrepancies are “versions of fraud,” said Nancy Wallace, a professor of finance and real estate at the Haas School of Business at the University of California-Berkeley. “This kind of stuff is not OK.”

    The tax return thing is just a Democrat talking point to feed their drones. Democrats don't even know why they want the tax returns or what they expect to find in them. It is a fishing expedition.

    What do Democrats expect to find in the tax returns?

    Anyone?

    This is like the harry Reid lie that Romney didn't pay his taxes.

    What tax fraud do you expect to find?

    Do you think trump does all his own taxes or does he pay tax guys to do it for him?

    Yeah, he was supposed to be a broke tax cheat.

    Turns out he is a genius business man, who pays more taxes than the liberal media establishment combined.

    An accountant or not, Trump is by law required to sign his completed tax forms.
    So your point is,,,,,?
