The Time I Found Donald Trumps Tax Records in My Mailbox

I have been on the hunt for Donald J. Trumps tax returns. The Republican presidential nominee has broken with decades-long tradition and refused to make his returns public. I have written extensively about Mr. Trumps finances, but, like almost every other reporter, I was eager to see his actual returns.

.

The envelope looked legitimate. I opened it, anxiously, and was astonished.

.

Inside were what appeared to be pages from Mr. Trumps 1995 tax records, containing detailed figures that revealed his tax strategies. Almost immediately, I walked over to the desk of David Barstow  a three-time Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter and my teammate in the quest for Mr. Trumps tax returns.

We obsessed over the documents, the envelope, the postmark, the date on the postmark  everything. We even checked every other mailbox on the third floor  and there are hundreds of them  in case the tipster had mailed additional documents to any other reporter.

.

.

Next, we set out to develop a portrait of Mr. Trumps finances from the period in question, to see if we could support what the documents showed that he had taken a huge loss in 1995 that could have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for nearly two decades.

.

.

We were initially thrown off by a quirk in the records noticed by Megan Twohey: On the line on which Mr. Trump had reported his huge loss  of $915,729,293  the first two digits did not line up with the next seven. Could the document have been doctored, we wondered?

.

We hired tax experts to guide us through the math. We researched the 1995 tax code. We reached out to anyone who might have viewed Mr. Trumps records during that period.

.

But the breakthrough came when David Barstow traveled to Florida and tracked down Jack Mitnick, the semiretired accountant who had prepared and signed Mr. Trumps tax returns.

.

Mr. Mitnick was initially reluctant to talk, but he eventually agreed to meet David in a bagel shop.

.

In a conversation there, Mr. Mitnick not only said that the records appeared to be authentic, he also solved the mystery of the digits that did not line up. It turned out that the tax preparation software he had used did not allow him to enter a loss of nine figures. So, he recalled, he had to manually enter the first two digits, using an IBM Selectric typewriter.

.

We did more reporting that broadened our picture of Mr. Trumps finances at the time, and reached out to additional sources. By Saturday  eight days after I had first opened the envelope  we were ready to go to the Trump campaign with our findings. Mr. Trump, through his spokeswoman, did not challenge or confirm the tax records, but he threatened us with legal action if we were to publish them.
