Summary

Updated 03/05/2019 04:55 PM ESTHouse Democrats plan to formally demand President Donald Trump’s tax returns in about two weeks, a key lawmaker said Tuesday.They intend to seek a decade’s worth of his personal tax returns, though not his business filings, said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.), a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee.Story Continued Below“We’re almost ready to go,” said Pascrell, who’s led a push among lawmakers to use an arcane law to unmask Trump’s tax returns.A 1924 law allows the heads of Congress’s tax committees to examine anyone’s confidential tax filings. The business filings would reveal more about his finances though, and some lawmakers are still pushing Neal to seek those as well.“Because of the intermingling of Trump’s personal business with the public business, it makes it all the more important to get his business returns,” said Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas), another top tax writer.“Don’t limit this to individual returns — they will not provide the answers to most of the questions we have,” he said.A Treasury Department spokesperson said that Secretary Steven Mnuchin will review the legality of any request for Trump’s returns with Treasury attorneys.
