Trump Still Refusing to Release Tax Returns

Donald Trump, continuing to resist calls for him to release his tax returns, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he will not do so until after the general election in November.

“There’s nothing to learn from them,” the apparent Republican presidential nominee said. He pointed out that he is undergoing an audit, and claimed he can not make his taxes public until the process is completed. “I’ll do it as fast as the auditors finish,” the billionaire businessman promised during a Sunday interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” According to The Hill, he also argued that voters are not concerned about his finances.

The news site reported that in February, the Internal Revenue Service announced that its audit does not prevent Trump from releasing his returns to comply with the demands of his political rivals. One of those opposing Trump’s White House bid, 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney, suggested two months ago that the tax records may contain information the candidate does not want to disclose.

Trump’s lawyers fired back with a letter claiming he has been “under continuous examination” for 14 years. The real-estate tycoon has not made public any of his returns from that period.
