House Democrats plan to formally demand President Donald Trump's tax returns in about two weeks

House 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.


“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. Lawmakers can also vote to make those returns publicly available, experts say.

“The chairman will be ready in two weeks to send his letter,” Pascrell said. “And I volunteered to deliver it.”
