Eshoo Calls On Joint Committee on Taxation to Request Trump’s Tax Returns

February 11th, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Thursday, February 9th, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) sent a letter to Chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation Orrin Hatch, urging him to use his existing statutory authority to request the tax returns of President Donald Trump.

Under Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code, the Joint Committee on Taxation has the power to request any tax return from the Secretary of Treasury, including that of the sitting president. Upon review of the tax returns, the Committee then has the power to release the returns to the public.

“President Trump is the first candidate and president since Watergate to refuse to release his tax information to the public,” Congresswoman Eshoo said. “Given the president’s significant worldwide interests and his long list of potential conflicts, I strongly urge the Committee to use its existing authority to immediately request his tax returns, review them appropriately, and disclose the returns to the public.”

Eshoo introduced the bipartisan Presidential Tax Transparency Act in January, which would require the president and all future presidents and presidential candidates to release their tax returns to the public.

The full text of the letter is attached.
