Some Tax Facts for Donald Trump from Warren Buffett

OMAHA, Nebraska –(BUSINESS WIRE)–Answering a question last night about his $916 million income tax loss carryforward in 1995, Donald Trump stated that “Warren Buffett took a massive deduction.” Mr. Trump says he knows more about taxes than any other human. He has not seen my income tax returns. But I am happy to give him the facts.

My 2015 return shows adjusted gross income of $11,563,931. My deductions totaled $5,477,694, of which allowable charitable contributions were $3,469,179. All but $36,037 of the remainder was for state income taxes.

The total charitable contributions I made during the year were $2,858,057,970, of which more than $2.85 billion were not taken as deductions and never will be. Tax law properly limits charitable deductions.

My federal income tax for the year was $1,845,557. Returns for previous years are of a similar nature in respect to contributions, deductions and tax rates.

I have paid federal income tax every year since 1944, when I was 13. (Though, being a slow starter, I owed only $7 in tax that year.) I have copies of all 72 of my returns and none uses a carryforward.

Finally, I have been audited by the IRS multiple times and am currently being audited. I have no problem in releasing my tax information while under audit. Neither would Mr. Trump – at least he would have no legal problem.

100 Energy companies filed for Bankruptcy

About 100 North American oil and gas companies have filed for bankruptcy since the start of a 2 year crude oil price collapse, and the industry may be only halfway done, according to restructuring specialists. Despite OPEC’s oil deal, “there’s going to have to be more filings just because there’s no price out there that’s foreseeable that’s going to bail these companies out,” said Patrick Hughes, partner at Haynes and Boone.

Here’s an article on how the Quantitative Easing by US Fed has contributed towards reduction in crude oil prices, which is a good thing for US economy.
