2015 Clinton 1040 Revealed

Posted by taxguru on August 19, 2016

The Clinton campaign released a copy of the Billary Clinton 2015 1040 to the public today, even though they were signed on 3/27/16.  No mention of why they waited four and a half months to release the return.

You can download a copy of this return via the Tax Analysts’ web-page I mentioned a little while ago.  It’s a 40 page PDF file.

I glanced over the return and have a few observations.

Gifts to Charity on Schedule A is $1,042,000.  The details of this on backup Schedule 4 are as follows: 

Desert Classic Charities                                       $42,000
The Clinton Crime Family Foundation           $1,000,000

Just as I discussed last year, 96% of the Clinton “charitable donations” for 2015 are payments to their own personally controlled illegal organized crime foundation.

Something that I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere else.  Besides Bill’s use of an LLC (WJC, LLC) on Schedule C for consulting income, Hitlery is also using her own LLC on two Schedules C to report speaking and writing income.  She also used this LLC on their 2014 1040. It’s called ZFS Holdings, LLC.  No mention of what the initials ZFS stand for.  Does anybody know?

As with their 2014 disclosure, there are no copies of their State income tax returns, although you can see that they deducted $1,369,277 for State Income Taxes Paid on Schedule A of their 1040.


Trump is standing firm on his strategy of not making public his tax returns, in spite of Hitlery’s attempts to publicly harass and shame him into doing so.  Given the fact that IRS and other government agencies  flagrantly break all laws in the support of DemonRat politicians, I’m sure someone at IRS will "accidentally" leak copies of the Trump tax returns to their allies in the left-wing press who are acting as blatant propagandists for the DemonRat Party.

Politicians’ Tax Returns

Posted by taxguru on July 14, 2016

I was researching for a comment on my favorite news site about a recent article that discusses the Clinton Crime Foundation, and wanted to get new copies of the Clintons’ income tax returns.  While there are links on several sites, including Hitlery’s campaign, I came across a treasure trove of tax returns for all US Presidents from FDR forward, plus several of the candidates.  Still nothing from Trump, but several others are there. 

This is a very handy reference, produced by the good folks at TaxAnalysts.  Anyone interested in these authorized peeks into the normally private finances of politicians should bookmark this site.  Having links to everyone’s tax returns in one place is a huge time saver over having to visit several individual sites.

Tax History Project – Presidential Tax Returns 

The discussion threads at only stay active and online for a few days, so here is a copy of what I posted.

As I’ve pointed out previously, almost all of the charitable contributions claimed on the Clintons’ 1040s over the past several years have been payments to their own bogus foundations. I can´t locate a copy of their 2015 tax returns, but on their 2014 Schedule A, they have deducted $3,000,000 of charitable contributions to The Clinton Family Foundation. And they have the nerve to accuse others of cheating on their taxes.

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.

Mitt Romney’s campaign released his 2011 tax return. Democrats still want him to release all his tax returns for the last 10 years. Romney says he can’t do it, and he’s got a good excuse. He says his dog ate them and then Obama ate the dog.
