House Ways and Means Committee Collects Trump’s Federal Tax Returns

The House Ways and Means Committee received six years of Trump’s federal tax returns. According to a Treasury spokesperson, the department “has complied with last week’s court decision,” referring to the Supreme Court’s approval of the collection of tax documents.

From CNN:

The committee, led by Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts, had sought six years of Trump’s tax records, primarily from the time he served as president. That included records about both Trump personally and several of his corporate entities.

The panel is planning to meet Thursday to get briefed on the legal ramifications of the section of the tax law that Neal used to request Trump’s tax returns, according to a Neal aide.

Democrats are not expected to review the tax returns at this session, and the documents are not expected to be immediately released to the public.

House general counsel Doug Letter plans to brief the panel about section 6103 of the tax law at the meeting, which is a weekly session that Democrats on the committee have when they’re not on recess.
