US Democrats demand Trump tax returns by April 23

Mnuchin postpones decision on handing over Trump tax returns Illinois Senate votes to bar Donald Trump from 2020 ballot if tax returns aren't released

The request for Trump's tax filings is but one of many oversight efforts launched by Democrats after taking back the House in last fall's midterms.

The US Treasury ignored a congressional deadline to release the documents earlier this week. The government's failure to respond by an April 23 deadline could send the dispute into federal court.

Mr Trump himself has claimed that he can not release his tax returns because they are under audit, although technically there is nothing preventing him from doing so. I don't think these are simple issues.

In a two-page letter, Neal writes that he believes his committee is well within its rights to see the President's tax returns and that he expects a decision from the IRS within the next 10 days. The law that Neal is relying on says the IRS "shall furnish" any tax return requested by the chairmen of key House and Senate committees.

Mnuchin told lawmakers that his department will "follow the law", but he hasn't shared the department's interpretation of the statute.

Federal law gives the chairmen of House Ways and Means, Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation the power to request the returns of any taxpayer, although some legal scholars believe the request needs a legitimate legislative objective, which Democrats say they have met. He is visiting Midwest states Trump narrowly won and Sanders says "Together, we are going to make sure that does not happen again".

The House Democrats' asked that the returns be turned over to the members of Congress.

Trump has repeatedly claimed to be unable to release his tax returns because he is under audit. Dubbed the "blue wall" before they unexpectedly tipped to Trump, they may have supplanted Florida and OH as the nation's premier presidential battlegrounds.

Trump appears prepared to fight this to the Supreme Court.

"It is not the proper function of the IRS, Treasury, or Justice to question or second guess the motivations of the committee", he wrote, according to the Washington Post. "Please know that if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request", Neal writes.

"Concerns about what the Committee may do with the tax returns and return information are baseless". Mulvaney has tried to frame the issue of the president's taxes as old news, saying it was "already litigated during the election" and the American people "elected him anyway".

Every US presidential candidate since 1976 has released their tax returns, but there is no law requiring it. Democrats claim the request is both legal and necessary.
