New York Democrats are trying to pass legislation designed to look into President Donald Trump’s tax records by making the state release the state tax returns of an elected official if filed in New York, the Gateway Pundit reports.
The bill, introduced this month in New York’s Senate and Assembly, would require the state to release five years of state tax information for all elected officials who file a New York state return.
Supporters of the bill said all details of Trump’s state return won’t be in the federal return.
But it would give the public more information about how his proposed tax cuts would impact his finances and if there’s any potential conflicts.
The bill does not require the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (NYSDTF) to release returns for the previous years.
The measure is expected to gain support from the Democrat-majority Assembly, but it will face an uphill climb in the Republican-led Senate.
