Eshoo to Introduce House Version of Bill Directing Presidential Candidates to Release Tax Returns

May 27th, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) announced today that she will introduce companion legislation to S. 2979, the Presidential Tax Transparency Act, when the House of Representatives returns from the Memorial Day recess. The bill, authored by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), requires presidential nominees of major political parties to publicly file federal tax returns with the Federal Election Commission.

“Those who strive to serve in the highest office in the land should be open and transparent with the American people about their tax returns,” Eshoo said.  “Voters have a right to know whether presidential candidates are taking advantage of tax loopholes that place more of a burden on hardworking Americans. This basic information should be available for the public to see before they cast their ballots, which is why I will be introducing this commonsense legislation when the House returns in June.”

The House of Representatives is scheduled to return from recess on Tuesday, June 7th.
