The New York Times has reported that US President Donald Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes in both 2016 and 2017, citing tax return data.
Trump also paid no income taxes in 10 of the last 15 years, the newspaper reported on Sunday.
The disclosure, which the Times said comes from tax return data it obtained extending across two decades, comes at a pivotal moment ahead of the first presidential debate Tuesday, and weeks before a divisive election.
Alan Garten, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said in a statement to the New York Times that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate”.
“Over the past decade, President Trump has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015,” Mr Garten said in a statement.
