We all remember so-called President Trump acknowledged a near billion dollar loss in his 1995 income tax returns that allowed him to pay ZERO federal income taxes for nearly two decades, as The New York Times reported. Well, it looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
According to legal documents obtained by the Daily Mail, “Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry” has been slapped with a New York State lien for failing to pay over $5,000 in taxes. That’s the price of lunch for these entitled takers, but I suppose they can’t be bothered paying what is essentially the admission price to a civilized society when the entire world revolves around them.
In case you think we’re just being nit-picky, this isn’t the first time lil’ Ivanka’s company followed in daddy’s footsteps. Apparently, her tax liens from 2015 add up to over $300,000. Whoopsie! Well, we can’t blame her completely. That’s how her daddy taught her to do it. Given that her daddy, the so-called President, didn’t pay any or nearly any taxes for the five years of tax returns that we do have access to, it stands to reason the returns he refuses to reveal would show him as an even worse Putin puppet tax dodger than we currently imagine. That’s some business model, I must admit! So “innovative” to profit off the infrastructure of roads, courts, police, fire, education, etc., but not pay a dime to maintain it. Too bad Trump’s dupes refuse to accept that he’s not a “genius,” just a crook.
At a 1936 address at Worcester, Massachusetts, Franklin Roosevelt said, “One sure way to determine the social conscience of a Government is to examine the way taxes are collected and how they are spent. And one sure way to determine the social conscience of an individual is to get his tax-reaction.” The Trump family’s extensive history of tax avoidance and neglect speaks volumes just how much they care about “making America great,” namely not at all.
Like Leona Helmsley, another one of our “betters” once said, “Only the little people pay taxes.” Not much has changed in the attitude and practice of the 1%.
Just Like her dad, Ivanka doesn’t just stiff “We, The People,” she stiffs contractors too!
Donald Trump is notorious for stiffing small businesspeople or contractors who often are powerless to fight him. Apparently, Ivanka learned her lessons well. The Daily Mail also reports,
“In March 2016, the New York Supreme Court ordered Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry to pay over $3 million, plus interest, to KGK Jewelry LLC over a breach of contract dispute. Ivanka’s company was required to make several payments to KGK for jewelry that it delivered, but refused to pay more than once.
The company argued that because KGK was one day late in returning certain computer design files and the jewelry was ‘of substandard quality,’ they were not obligated to make further payments.
The court rejected this argument and ordered Ivanka’s company to pay $3,059,590.”
It’s amazing that, given their record, any working class American is stupid enough to think the Trump’s operate in the best interest of the “forgotten worker” when too often it’s the Trumps “forgetting” to pay.
In just 30 years, went from the most to the least upwardly mobile with the widest income gap of all industrialized nations thanks, in part to tax policies that favor the rich, who then turn around and use their windfall profits to buy politicians, corrupt government, and keep the game rigged in their favor. That is truly the Trump “business model.”
Welcome to life in the United States of Serfs and Lords, a nation where Trump and his ilk act as if lining their personal pockets is a patriotic duty, while the “little people” carry them on their backs and get stuck with the bill.
