In an appearance on The Hugh Hewitt Show, Donald Trump revealed that — to the best of his knowledge — he has been audited by the IRS every year.
After Hewitt asked Trump whether he would be producing his tax returns any time soon, the billionaire remarked that his tax returns are nearly two feet high and he is audited all the time.
“You know, I have a very, very complex…I have, did you ever see the picture, I tweeted a picture where the returns are like two feet high,” said Trump.

“Which by the way in itself is ridiculous. But my returns are among the largest, I’m audited all the time by government [the IRS]. And I think every single year, I’ve had an audit for years,” Trump went on to say.
“And you know, other people, friends of mine say they never get audited. I say congratulations. I have audits every year. So it’s, you know, one of those things. But we are working, they are very complex papers, but we’re working on it,” Trump said.
Hewitt continued to press Trump on whether they would be able to see those tax returns any time soon, because as he put it, “Mitt Romney got killed on this four years ago and you’ve gotta get them out there as well.”
While Trump didn’t give an exact date we would be seeing his tax returns, he did hint they will be much better than people are expecting.
“Everything is very much, you know, I gave my financials ahead of schedule, much ahead of schedule. I had a long time to give them, and I gave them immediately. And they were very complex, also, and very big, and they turned out to be extremely good, much better, actually, than people thought,” said Trump.
