Clinton Tax Returns & Questionable Donations
Posted by taxguru on July 31, 2015
One of the benefits of the extremely lengthy presidential campaign season in this country is the ability of the general public to take a peek into the private tax returns of those candidates who choose to make theirs available for viewing.
As has been all over the news today, the Clinton campaign has posted download links for several of Bill & Hitlery’s individual income tax returns here on her website. They have the Federal individual income tax returns for the years 2007 through 2014. No copies of State income tax returns are included.
I’m not planning to spend the time dissecting each of those tax returns in great detail. However, I do feel a need to point out that these 1040s reveal only a tiny fraction of the income that the Clinton Family has received over the past years because they do not show the other entities that they use to funnel income and expenses through, such as the infamous Clinton Crime Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative that have brought in hundreds of millions of dollars in “donations” (aka bribes) from all over the world and which have been used fro the personal benefit of the Clintons.
What is another Clinton stretching of the truth (aka Lie) is the claim of how much they have donated to charity for those years. From her website:
“Since 2007, we have … made $14,959,450 in charitable contributions.”
Looking at the details on the tax returns, most of those “charitable contributions” were actually made to themselves via their foundation that has been exposed as a Clinton Family slush fund that gives practically nothing to real charities.
From the copies of the tax returns I downloaded:
2014 – $3,000,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $3,022,700) was to the Clinton Foundation
2013 – $3,057,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $3,078,000) was to the Clinton Foundation & Global Initiative
2012 – $1,800,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $1,825,650) was to the Clinton Foundation
2011 – $1,400,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $1,400,000) was to the Clinton Foundation
2010 – $1,000,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $1,000,000) was to the Clinton Foundation
2009 – $1,000,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $1,000,000) was to the Clinton Foundation
2008 – $550,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $550,000) was to the Clinton Foundation
2007 – $3,019,000 (out of a total charity deduction of $3,083,100) was to the Clinton Foundation
Totals for Eight Years:
$14,826,000 (99.11%) of $14,959,450 total donations were paid to the Clinton Foundation and Global Initiative
I realize that, of all the crimes that the Clintons have committed, this pales in comparison; but it is the one area that my skill-set makes easiest for me to detect.
