NO TAX BILL until Trump Release Tax Returns!

This petition had 274 supporters

Citing PolitFacts - The Tax History Project has compiled the tax returns of many current and former candidates and presidents, all the way back to Franklin Roosevelt’s 1913 returns.

Each Republican nominee in the past nine presidential elections has released his tax returns: Ronald Reagan (1980, 1984), George H. W. Bush (1988, 1992), Bob Dole (1996), George W. Bush (2000, 2004), John McCain (2008) and Mitt Romney (2012).

Presidential candidates began releasing their returns consistently starting in the early 1970’s according to Thorndike, and in 1978, all presidential and vice presidential candidates were required to release certain financial documents as a result of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, which mandates all candidates running for office of President of the United States to file a Public Financial Disclosure Report with the Federal Election Commission.

 As you know if you've been following this issue, Trump has said that he can't release his returns because he's being audited by the IRS. Like many things Trump says, this is utterly bogus: The IRS has stated that he's free to release them if he wants to, and doing so would have no effect on the outcome of the audit.
