Never mind that; he himself just confessed to it with his tweet calling it "sport".
Indeed. From an analyst after the questioning of Cohen about Trump's creative valuation of his properties:

"“Fundamentally, this is a question of Trump’s attitude toward taxes,” says Steve Rosenthal, senior fellow for the Urban–Brookings Tax Policy Center. “Does he believe that taxes are a shared responsibility? Or does he believe that taxes are a game of hide and seek?”

And now we know the answer to that question, directly from Trump himself. Paying taxes is "a sport", one that presumably you can cheat to win at, just like Trump does with golf.
