Trump is expected to sign an executive order Thursday that will make it easier for him to avoid paying federal income taxes on millions of dollars he has earned from the real estate and other real estate-related business ventures that he has run.
It is expected that Trump, who has been widely criticized for avoiding paying federal taxes, will receive $1.9 million in income tax breaks, the Associated Press reported.
The White House said Trump is seeking a 20 percent tax cut, but has not yet specified how much that would be.
Trump, who recently returned from his holiday at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, said he had signed the executive order “without any further delay,” according to the AP.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
He has repeatedly said he does not owe any federal income tax on his investments, which include a vast portfolio of real estate in New York and Miami.
Earlier this week, Trump tweeted that he would file a claim for the money.
“I’m not going to pay federal income.
I have nothing,” he tweeted.
“The president is going to file a return.”
But as of Thursday, Trump had not filed a federal income or federal estate tax return, the AP reported.
Trump has said he will file a “return on the books” after he gets a tax refund, but that he will not pay taxes until the federal estate and income tax are paid.
At the same time, Trump has promised to pay more than $10 million in federal taxes.
He has said that he is paying about $1 billion a year in federal income and estate taxes.
