Democrats Give Trump 10 Days To Hands Over Tax Returns

Fact checked

Democratic lawmakers have given President Donald Trump until 23 April to hand over his tax returns.

Democrats seized on the issue of Trump’s undisclosed taxes since taking control of the House of Representatives and citing a little-known law that allows Congress to review anyone’s returns to conduct an investigation.

On Saturday they gave tax authorities a new and final deadline to get their hands on the president’s tax returns after an initial April 10 deadline lapsed.

The lawmakers could go to court to seek the returns if the IRS does not turn them over.

Press TV reports: The announcement was made as part of an investigation launched in the Democratic-held House of Representatives.

“I am aware that concerns have been raised regarding my request and the authority of the Committee,” House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal said in a letter to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Charles Rettig. “Those concerns lack merit.”

United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said the administration would respond by the revised deadline.

“I’m sure we’ll respond by that deadline, not going to make a commitment prematurely whether we’ll be able to conclude a legal review by that deadline,” Mnuchin said. “We have people working on it diligently.”

Trump has refused to release his tax returns arguing that they are being audited, a claim rejected by the IRS.


  1. When are we going to see theirs. Release everyone’s returns or phuck it they don’t get President Trump’s.

  2. Never gonna get POTUS’ tax returns so face it. Stinking corrupt cabal still thinks they can win – these ppl are really, really stupid.

    • I’m absolutely sure the corruptocrats already have all of Trump’s tax returns. We’re talking about the ‘virtuous’ IRS here. They’re not able to leak to their media lapdogs because they know Trump will drag them to court.

  3. He’s not going to hand over squat and they know it. Socialists are TOTALLY BLOWING their chance of winning in 2020 by acting like middle schoolers and not standing by the real issues Americans care about.

  4. This is not what I have heard. What I read is that Mnuchin said IRS can’t release anyone’s taxes without a very, very good reason to do so. President Trump has committed no crime, there is no evidence that he did, so therefore there is NO reason to do so. Congress has a little known law that allows anyone to have their taxes released is news to me and I doubt it will hold up in a court of law.

  5. Why should he give his Tax Returns? He has Not Sucked off TARP Money or took a Goverment Tax Funded Job until 2017, Only then he cashed his 1st Tax Payers Goverment Check.. He was Born in this Country in New York AND is not a Dual Citizen for Any other Country.. He never files Taxes under any other Country besides USA, even though he has Property’s in other Country’s. If I was Trump I say HELL NO and tell the Democrats to Eat $hit.
