The latter has already indicated that he expects the documents “immediately”. Richard Neal, the chairman of the committee responsible for taxes in the House (“Ways and Means”) demanded the last six tax declarations from the businessman in 2019. Mr. Neal opposed a categorical “not” from the US Treasury before it gave its approval after Joe Biden became president. Donald Trump then appealed.
But the federal court in Washington DC ruled that “every president takes office knowing that when he leaves he will be subject to the same laws as all other citizens”. This is why, according to the court, Donald Trump must provide the requested documents. However, the former tenant of the White House can still appeal.
It is customary in the United States for presidential candidates to release their tax returns. But Donald Trump has always refused to comply, both during his campaign and during his mandate.
