In the third presidential debate, Donald Trump lied about Hillary Clinton’s tax reforms. He claims that Hillary Clinton will raise the public’s taxes, however, this is applicable only if you have an annual salary of $143,000. Speaking of taxes, let us take a look at Hillary Clinton’s tax record.

Since the beginning of the election, Hillary Clinton has been very clear about her views on taxes. She is of the opinion that wealthy people currently pay very little taxes, whereas the middle class needs more leverage. She claims that she will look into the matter, and fix the loophole. She further ensures that millionaires and billionaires won’t pay lower rates than middle-class families. Let us hope that she sticks to her word if she becomes the next U.S. president.

Talking about taxes, during the third presidential debate, Clinton raised her concerns about Trump not paying his taxes. She, in turn, is very particular about her tax returns. Why don’t we take a look at Hillary Clinton’s income tax returns?

At least Clinton has been honest about her tax records, and revealed them to the public. Trump claims that the country will see a massive tax increase, if Clinton becomes president. However, Hillary Clinton’s take on taxes has a different view altogether. She has emphasized the fact that the wealthy people have been paying much less in taxes, and has given her word to solve this issue.

Now that the third and final presidential debate is over, hopefully voters have made up their minds about who they think should be the next president of the United States.
