Congressman Sets April 23 Deadline for IRS To Turn Over Trump's Tax Returns

Headline Roundup April 13th, 2019

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Richard Neal (D - MA) set an April 23 deadline for the IRS to turn over President Trump’s tax returns. Neal said the law gives Congress the right to six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns. If April 23 passes without the tax returns being provided or a resolution being met, House Democrats and the Trump administration may end up in federal court.

The administration missed an April 10 deadline as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin consulted with the Justice Department about the law to determine whether Neal had a legitimate legislative purpose to make the request. Under the law, Neal can request any taxpayer’s returns and the Treasury Department “shall furnish” them.

WASHINGTON—House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Richard Neal set a final April 23 deadline for the IRS to turn over President Trump’s tax returns.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called the new deadline “arbitrary” on Saturday without saying whether the administration would meet it as it studies the legal questions involved. If that date passes without the documents or a resolution to the dispute, House Democrats and the Trump administration could be headed for a clash in federal court.

Rep. Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, on Saturday sent a two-page letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig rebuffing Mnuchin’s statement earlier this week that Treasury would miss House Democrats’ initial April 10 deadline for the returns.
