Trump said in a statement that the tax returns, “show how proudly successful I have been and how I have been able to use depreciation and various other tax deductions as an incentive for creating thousands of jobs and magnificent structures and enterprises.”
This information was revealed with a massive release of his tax returns by the House Ways and Means Committee that cover his personal and business earnings from 2015 to 2020.
“Our voluntary collection relies on the public confidence that our tax laws are applied evenly and justly, regardless of position or power. For four years, the Committee has been reviewing how the IRS enforces the federal tax laws against, and ensures compliance by, a president,” Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., said in a statement.
Neal and Committee Democrats are proposing legislation, the Presidential Tax Filings and Audit Transparency Act of 2022, that they said will improve transparency and the mandatory auditing process for presidents. But the bill is unlikely to pass now that Republicans are taking over the House on Jan. 3, as they opposed the release of Trump’s returns.
