Trump’s Tax Returns
DAY 86 ACTION: Tell the President to Share his Taxes!
“Taxes are the price we pay for civilization.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Supreme Court Justice, 1902-1932
Every major party candidate since Gerald Ford in 1976 has published tax returns for the public’s review. That ended with Donald Trump. Trump never released his tax returns during the election, and in January, told the press that he doesn’t think Americans “care at all.”
March 1, 1914 was established as the first tax day, about a year after the 16th Amendment authorized taxes and six months after the Revenue Act of 1913. In 1955, the day was moved to April 15.
This year, tax returns are not due until April 18. That’s because April 15 falls on a Saturday, and Monday is a holiday in Washington, DC.
Honor the usual Tax Day by calling on Trump to release his tax returns!
