Analysts anticipate a maze of real estate transactions showing losses and licensing profit left offshore

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Tuesday said he won’t release his tax returns, saying there is “nothing to learn from them.”
Tax specialists, however, disagree.
There’s no legal requirement for a presidential candidate to make his or her tax returns public but every major party nominee since 1976 has done so — often well before winning the nomination. The likely Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, has posted 8 years of returns.
Trump boasts that he pays as little in taxes as possible but he’s not showing, or telling, the voters exactly how he does that.
