Jack Mitnick became an overnight celebrity after revealing details about Donald Trump’s alleged tax fraud. The 80-year old was the billionaire businessman’s accountant and claimed that Trump avoided paying federal income tax for almost a decade.


Mitnick became a hero to Clinton supporters after the New York Times published an investigation to Trump’s finances. The Times cited the semi-retired lawyer as the source of the information regarding the GOP nominee’s tax fraud.

According to Heavy, after an anonymous tipper mailed Trump’s alleged 1995 tax returns, the New York Times needed to prove they were genuine. The paper turned to Jack Mitnick, a lawyer and certified public accountant who handled the businessman’s tax matters up until 1996.

    Jack Mitnick is not a registered CPA in NY. If he is he just committed a crime and an ethics violation. A sad example that tarnishes my honorable profession.

      Even if you are not currently registered as a CPA in the state- it ought to be a crime and an ethics violation if you retired and divulge former client information that you are a party to.
      He is either senile or dishonorable or both!

    From the article…

    “….Donald Trump’s alleged tax fraud.”

    No one, anywhere, is claiming “tax fraud” in any way, shape or form. Not even the New York Times.
