MSNBC reveals Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow revealed a portion of President Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return on her show Tuesday night.

Maddow said reporter David Cay Johnston of DCReport.org acquired two pages of the form 1040 tax return. According to the documents obtained by DCReport, Trump and his wife, Melania, paid $5.3 million in regular income taxes in 2005, and $31 million in the alternative minimum tax. Trump has called for the alternative minimum tax to be abolished.

Johnston said the documents were mailed to him.

Trump critics say the tax returns are crucial to knowing about Trump’s possible financial relationships with foreign governments and debts to overseas banks, as well as knowing his sources of income and answering whether he has paid federal taxes.
