Where does Donald Trump’s TRData LogoTINY money come from?

Until he releases his tax returns, we’ll never fully know. But Trump’s annual financial disclosures to the US Office of Government Ethics are a good place to begin.

Trump has reported hundreds of millions of dollars in cash receipts from scores of companies around the world, under federal guidelines that require such disclosures from all presidential candidates. Yet he acknowledged during the president debate Sunday that he has not paid personal income tax on those millions in years.

To help readers grasp the magnitude of potentially not paying income tax on what amounts, at a minimum, to $1.4 billion in reported assets, The Real Deal combed through 188 entities for which Trump reported either income or a minimum value over two filing periods in 2015 and 2016.

The result: An interactive that shows what Trump owns, where he owns it and how much it’s all worth (according to him).

Filter by asset type and location to identify the income and value for every reported company. (Please be patient, as the portal can take a few seconds to load. May not work in Safari browser.)
