Mark Cuban Attacks Trump on Taxes, but Says He Doesn’t Know What’s on His Own Returns

Hillary Clinton’s best new pal “real billionaire” Mark Cuban blasted Trump after a recent report that claimed the GOP presidential nominee may have legally avoided paying income tax.

But Cuban has also said he has no idea what’s on his own tax returns.

On Monday, he told CNN: “After military service, the most patriotic thing you can do as a wealthy person is pay your taxes. Because that keeps the roads paid, the military paid and kids going to school, and he obviously doesn’t understand the concept,” Cuban added about Trump.

But the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks hasn’t exactly been forthcoming about his own taxes.

After all, back in February, Cuban wrote a blog post saying: “Read my words: My taxes are none of your business.”

In the post, he claimed that “it doesn’t matter if producing tax returns has become a ‘tradition.’ It is a poor one that should not be part of the electoral process.”

Cuban questioned the idea behind releasing any personal information by presidential candidates saying it might create a dangerous precedent in which the contenders would blackmail each other.

He finished the article by writing:

I have no idea if my tax returns are more or less complicated than Donald Trump’s. I truly don’t know what is on my tax returns. The people that work for me know and understand that I don’t like to pay taxes, but I’m not against it either. I truly believe that its patriotic to pay taxes. So I tell them to be very conservative in making choices.

Does Mark Cuban have anything to hide?
