“When you run for president, especially when you become the nominee, that is kind of expected,” Clinton said during a New Jersey rally. “My husband and I have released 33 years of tax returns. We have eight years on our website right now, so you’ve got to ask yourself, why doesn’t he want to release them?”
“Yeah, well, we’re going to find out,” Clinton added.
The Hill reports:
Trump told The Associated Press he doesn’t plan to release his returns before the November election, saying “there’s nothing to learn from them.”
The Internal Revenue Service issued a statement in February saying nothing prevents Trump from releasing his tax returns after he blamed an audit for his initial refusal to do so.
Trump’s campaign released a letter from his attorneys in March saying his returns had been “under continuous examination” since 2002. He has continued to decline calls to release his returns since then.
“I’ll do it as fast as the auditors finish,” Trump said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
While releasing tax returns isn’t legally required of presidential candidates, it is customary, and Trump would be the first major candidate to withhold them since 1976, according to a New York Times report.
