DRAFT-DODGER, TAX DODGER...:

Donald Trump on Not Paying Taxes: 'That Makes Me Smart' (RICHARD RUBIN, Sep 26, 2016, WSJ)

When Mrs. Clinton said there were years when Mr. Trump paid no taxes, he replied, "That makes me smart."

When Mrs. Clinton said U.S. infrastructure was failing because Mr. Trump hasn't paid any federal income taxes for a lot of years, he said, "It would be squandered, too, believe me."

Mrs. Clinton has made Mr. Trump's tax returns an issue throughout the campaign. He is the first major-party candidate since 1976 to refuse to release his tax returns. It is unclear how much he has reported in federal income, how much he has paid in taxes or how much he has donated to charity.

Public records confirm that at some points in the past, Mr. Trump hasn't paid income taxes.
