    Looks like he paid 36.5 million in taxes, at least for one year. Not sure why this year was released.

    The data was available.
    The question is who leaked it and what exactly was the Intention. And probably we won't know.

    Probably a good year.....be interested to know if another is released showing where he was getting finance from, given his previous return that showed a 1 billion loss that gave him many tax free years to tread water, where due to his fiscal volatility, no US lender would give him any money.

    He paid 37 million taxes over a 150 million income.
    That's like... uh... a certain percentage, isn't it?

    Really? I pay 38% taxes... and I don't earn anything like that.
    In fact, my pay is so low I presume I'm a slave or something.

    In Germany you pay from 22 to 46 % tax for work, but only 25% for capital gains. Probably the same in the Netherlans and the USA.

    Long term capital gains are up to 20%. Short term capital gains are taxed like regular income.

    You mean in Europe they give rich people a lower tax rate than poor working people?

    But some of that is your health insurance and education budget.

    No. In Germany Health insurtance is health insurance and taxes are taxes. Education goes from taxes.
