Day 86: Where are Trump’s Taxes?

Trump’s Tax Returns

DAY 86 ACTION: Tell the President to Share his Taxes!

Where are Trump’s tax returns?

“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.”

But 74% do care, and want to see Trump’s returns. Why? Because they would tell us how Trump earns his money, and could reveal ties to Russia.

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!

Today’s Action: Join a march today to call for Trump’s taxes. Sign this petition to ask Trump to release his taxes. Demand transparency from the President!
