The former president, unlike all his predecessors since the 1970s, has not released his tax returns.
Former President’s Tax Returns Donald Trump After a long legal battle, it was made public by a US House committee on Friday. Donald Trump, who has entered a new race for the White House in 2024, unlike all his predecessors since the 1970s, has not disclosed his tax returns, raising many questions about their content.
In mid-December, a parliamentary committee voted in favor of releasing six years of the billionaire’s tax returns between 2015 and 2020. A panel of elected officials had been demanding documents the billionaire had sent to tax authorities for three years. For years, he refused. The Supreme Court finally ruled in their favor at the end of November.
Donald Trump strongly condemned the decision in a press release to CBS on Friday, though the reports “Show me my victory once more“.
Their release is a further setback for the former White House tenant, who has already been the subject of numerous investigations into the management of his archives and his financial affairs in New York.
Donald Trump’s lack of transparency, making his wealth a campaign argument, has fueled years of speculation about the extent of his fortune or conflicts of interest.
His family business, the Trump Organization, has not investigated the former Republican president since an investigation in New York in early December accused him of financial and tax fraud.
A separate congressional report on U.S. tax officials shows that the latter are not following all of Donald Trump’s orders. “This is a major American tax failure“, rebuked Democrat-elect Richard Neal, chairman of the parliamentary commission.
