  • New York gov signs law that would allow Congress to get Trump's state tax returns

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday signed an amendment to New York law that would allow Congress to get hold of President Donald Trump's state tax returns while the legal battle for his federal returns rages on.

    The law, which takes effect Monday, requires the state's tax commissioner to provide New York state tax returns to Congress upon request from the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, or the Joint Committee on Taxation and mandates the removal of any federal tax information that might appear on state returns.
    Despite this, there are no immediate plans for House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal to request Trump's state tax returns as the law outlines, according to a Democratic aide with knowledge of the situation. Utilizing the New York law could complicate the battle the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee has already been waging in court to obtain six years of the President's personal and business federal tax returns.

    Partisanship at its finest.

      Why would they need to feel they need to repeal that law since historically, every President has voluntarily submitted their tax returns?

        That's what makes it partisan!
