Disclaimer - I am NOT advocating or supporting Trump in any way.

As long as he/his company filed and submitted properly based on current tax laws. If the result is that no taxes were due the problem is not with the company or businessman the problem is with our tax laws and they should be changed. Now if his company filed improperly and illegally withheld taxes due then he/his company is the problem.

Again this is NOT meant to indicate support for Trump in any way.

I feel the same way about other laws, if you don't like them then you need to change them.

...and if said people start whining about 'loopholes' this or that, ask them if they have declared the free lunch they might have at work or made sure to pay their state taxes on all the goodies they mail ordered on the interwebs. :-)

This ain't reddit, you don't need to put two disclaimers saying you don't like Trump for fear of being banned for being not anti-Trump enough.

I think he's trying to emphasise his unbiased opinion toward the tax laws themselves and detract it from looking like a circle jerk trump post.

I'm just saying if you feel he or others are following the law but you don't like the result then change the law. Just Complaining that someone is doing something legal is a waste of time, however if you feel it is that important then work to change the law. This goes for all laws not just tax laws.

As for paying more taxes.. I am not advocating for more or less as part of this discussion. Generally speaking some taxes should be collected to run a country properly (to manage infrastructure services and so on), however proper management of those funds are just as important. Raising taxes does no good if they are mismanaged. Finding a fair way to distribute the tax burden is complex and I don't have the answer, however it does seem as if the tax burden in the US can be unfairly distributed due to overly complex tax laws and regulations.
