House Dems Set New Deadline for IRS to Hand Over Trump Tax Returns

HeadlineApr 15, 2019

House Democrats set a new deadline of April 23 for the IRS to hand over Trump’s tax returns, after the agency failed to meet the original deadline set for last week. Democrats are asking for six years of Trump’s tax records. House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal said the IRS and the Treasury Department were not legally empowered to refuse the committee’s request. Neal could follow up a second failure to meet the request with a subpoena or file a lawsuit.
