Trump Says He Won’t Turn Over His Tax Returns. It’s Not Up To Him Anymore. | HuffPost

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he doesn’t want to let Democrats see his tax returns.

You can now ask but you won’t get them so what can be done?(ODT)

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he doesn’t want to let Democrats see his tax returns once they assume control of the U.S. House of Representatives next year.

But that’s actually not up to the president ― according to the law, at least.

The leaders of key congressional committees can ask the IRS for anybody’s tax returns. Republicans simply did not want to do so. Democrats said in October that they would ask the IRS for Trump’s returns if they regained control of the House, which they did on Tuesday night.

Trump said Wednesday that he would hand over his tax returns if he weren’t being audited ― an excuse he has made since his 2016 campaign, even though nothing about an IRS audit prevents a candidate or a president from disclosing his returns.
