Does it make sense to pay no taxes?
I watched Monday’s presidential debate along with 84 million other people and one thing really struck me as I was listening. It was when Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump of paying no Federal taxes and then Donald said that not paying taxes was really smart. Is avoiding taxes smart? Now, I’m not accusing Donald Trump of doing anything illegal. I assume he has many highly paid lawyers and accountants who prepare his taxes for him. While he might be pursuing some aggressive techniques to legally avoid paying taxes, I assume he is not actually committing fraud. At any rate, that’s between him and the IRS.
