1. N.Y. prosecutors looking into Donald Trump's businesses are about to get his tax returns and other financial records. The Times obtained Trump's tax return information in 2020 and there is plenty there for investigators to pursue. A thread 👉nytimes.com/2021/02/22/us/…
2. The consulting fees. Trump's taxes show unidentified consultants’ fees, some of which can be matched to payments received by Ivanka Trump. Were these payments legit / did her siblings also receive big consulting fees? See this story for details. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
3. Trump's taxes don't show hush-money payments to women. However, investigators should be able to get their hands on additional documents, which will show whether any payments were buried in an area like legal fees, which are not itemized on tax returns. nytimes.com/2019/08/01/nyr…
4. Seven Springs is a mansion in N.Y. The Trumps have said it's a family retreat. Donald Trump told the I.R.S. it's an investment property, a move that has generated him substantial tax savings. We explore the issues around this here. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
5. What happened in Las Vegas? In 2016 Donald Trump engineered a windfall for himself as his campaign funds dwindled. Here I would want to see the agreements he has claimed underpin the payments he got - and any communications he had with his accountants. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
It's significant N.Y. investigators are getting a trove of financial records beyond tax returns. Returns are almost always one piece of the puzzle. In 2018 we used tax returns, financial statements and more to show Trump engaged in tax fraud in the 1990s. nytimes.com/interactive/20…

JUST POSTED: The New York Times has obtained 10 years of previously unrevealed figures from Donald Trump's federal income-tax returns - from 1985 to 1994. Trump ran up $1.2 billion in core business losses in the decade we examined. LOTS here 👉 nytimes.com/interactive/20…
We don’t have Donald Trump’s actual tax returns. Rather we obtained printouts from his official I.R.S. tax transcripts, with figures from his federal 1040, for 85 to 94. Here’s an explanation of our sourcing ->
Donald Trump paid no income taxes in 8 of the 10 years we examined. His losses were so big that in 1991 they accounted for fully 1% of all business losses declared that year by individual American taxpayers. w @russbuettner nytimes.com/interactive/20…
