It’s Official: Joe Biden Paid $300k in Taxes, Proving His Accountant is Worse Than Trump’s

There’s long been a debate about the morality of taxes. The consensus seems to be that taxes themselves are a legal obligation, not a moral obligation.

However, as citizens of the nation, we have a moral obligation to follow the law. This means that we have no moral obligation to any particular level of taxes, but we do have a moral obligation to follow all applicable laws.

This becomes important when considering the reporting by the New York Times that President Trump paid just $750 in taxes for 2016 and 2017. That might seem like a misprint, or that Trump somehow lied, but that’s not what the Times reports. They claim they did a thorough review of Trump’s complicated tax filings and they did not report anything fraudulent. It appears that Trump’s accountants did their job by reporting his income and holdings in a way that was most favorable to their client, reducing his tax liability to little more than a monthly car payment.

It seems that Joe Biden’s accountants weren’t quite as good.

Biden just released his tax returns, showing that he paid $300,000 in taxes for 2019 on income of $985,233, for a tax rate of just over 30%.

Maybe Biden should ask Trump for a referral to his accounting firm.

Of note, Biden, a retired politician, and his wife, a teacher, reported income in 2017 and 2018 of $11 million and $4.6 million respectively. Those are healthy numbers for two public servants.

    How in the world did the Biden’s make 2017 and 2018 of $11 million and $4.6 million respectively without illegal and corrupt dealings? He is a retired US Senator and she a teacher!
    Did they get special payments from Burisma and China too?

    He must have acquired great wealth in politics. I could not see him outside of politics in any professional compacity. Running a business, in the real world. I wonder how much of his wealth was acquired by his dealings with the Chinese Communist Party!

    Biden didn’t pay those taxes we taxpayers did. That guy has been living off us for nearly fifty years.

    A VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN IS ALSO A VOTE TO GIVE AWAY 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT WHICH PROTECTS THE OTHER RIGHTS, SO IN RETURN YOU GIVE UP ALL YOUR RIGHTS TO AN COMMUNIST TYPE NUT JOB.

    LOOK; Whatever these men made or didn’t make or whatever they paid in taxes is the business of the IRS and the accountants respectfully! Why should this be public news? I really don’t care! The IRS is, well, they are up on what is paid or not paid by each so…! Let this go! Worry about the purpormance of the Office, and or the candidate!
