The New York Times has obtained Trump's tax figures from 1985-1994.

The New York Times has obtained President Donald Trump's tax figures from 1985-1994.

The Times did not receive Trump's actual tax returns, but it did receive the information from this era from someone who had legal access to it.

The story told by the files is much different than the story Trump has told to the public.

Trump suffered a $1.17 billion loss during that 10-year period, according to the New York Times.

The Times reports that in that time period, Trump:

"...lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners."

Trump lost so much money during this era that he didn't have to pay income tax for eight of these 10-years. In the period from 1990-1991, Trump's core businesses, mainly casino gaming, lost $250M.

President Donald Trump's representative has denied the Time's report, calling it, "demonstrably false".
