This is probably closer to what he did in previous years and would explain why we are not going to see those returns. And it's nothing to do with whats legal or smart - its about the fact that the rich are benefitted FAR MORE with our tax codes than the sniveling, entitled, freeloading government dependent poor.
Unless said poor qualify for earned income credit (and the majority of poor do), in which case they can get more more back than they pay in (even when including social security and medicare taxes). At very least, they pay very little overall in total federal taxes.
The tax code, in the confusing and halting style in which it is written, actually favors the poor more than it does the wealthy. And I am not complaining about that, but both do better regarding federal taxes than those making between 40-200 or so thousand a year.
