Democrats Demand Trump Tax Returns by April 23

I owed the IRS after making this tax mistake in college

He said Mr. Trump's tax returns in NY will have some of the same information found in the president's federal tax returns.

Mnuchin, who has consulted with the White House and Department of Justice about Trump's tax returns, said earlier this week that Neal's request raised concerns about the scope of the committee's authority, privacy protections for US taxpayers and the legislative objective of lawmakers in seeking the documents. "Moreover, judicial precedent commands that none of the concerns raised can legitimately be used to deny the committee's request", Neal told IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig in his letter.

In a letter to committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., on Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said his department hasn't decided whether to comply with the demand and said Treasury will consult with the Justice Department and "carefully" review the request further. Mnuchin's letter earlier this week said Neal's request "raises serious issues concerning the constitutional scope of congressional investigative authority".

The House Democrats' asked that the returns be turned over to the members of Congress. Antonio Muñoz, would require any candidate for president or vice president to release the most recent five years of their tax returns to have their name on the general election ballot.

Hoylman, who represents a Manhattan district, introduced legislation that would allow the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to send Congress state tax returns requested by three Congressional committees for a "specific and legitimate legislative goal".

The Democratic-led Illinois Senate voted 36-19 in favor of a bill allowing the state to block President Trump from the 2020 ballot if he does not release five years of his tax returns.

Mnuchin said that Treasury Department lawyers have been working "diligently" to research the issues involved and have been in contact with Justice Department attorneys.

Trump appears prepared to fight this to the Supreme Court.

Committee Chairman Richard Neal, a Democrat, noted that any "failure to comply" by Trump with the second deadline will be interpreted by lawmakers as a refusal to comply and a denial of the committee's request, according to Reuters. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, said in a statement that alluded to the 1924 statute that mandates the IRS provide any taxpayer's returns when asked by a handful of top lawmakers. He claimed - and has continued to claim - that he could not make his tax returns public because they were under audit by the IRS.

"For good reason, it would be a gross abuse of power for the majority to use tax returns as a weapon to attack, harass, and intimidate their political opponents".
