Question on Thornmail

So I've been theorycrafting lately about thornmail and I was wondering, does the effect also apply to turrets? I know their damage is mitigated by armor, but if a tower attacks me with this item, will the tower take the 20% damage it dealt as magic damage?

OUt of curiosity, I decided to test this in a practice game.

Thornmail does not return damage to turrets. I would have tested it against Baron Nashor if I had thought far enough ahead to pick Summoner's Rift but I usually do Twisted Treeline vs. bots because I can win the round faster.

Thanks I8C SRS FACE (http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=36062#)!

I was trying to decide if the item would be worth putting into my Malphite tank build, considering the upcoming buff to it. I know it has that issue with gaining turret agro if enemy heroes attack you while in range of their towers, but I figured if thornmail reflected that damage too, it could be worth the agro.

I guess I'll be sticking to Warden's Mail for one of my cheap luxury items
