Democrats put up a new deadline to provide Trump’s tax returns

Richard Neal, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee set a deadline of April 23.

Richard Neal (D-MA) demanded the US Internal revenue service (IRS) to provide tax returns of President Donald Trump again. This time no later than April 23. He sent the corresponding letter to the management of Department on Saturday.

“I expect a response from IRS by 17:00 23 April 2019. I ask you to keep in mind that if you do not fulfill these conditions, it will be regarded as a refusal”, the Congressman’s letter says.

He already sent a similar request in early April. Neal required to provide tax returns by April 10. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced his office received the request of the Democrats. It’s in the process of consideration. He spoke at the Appropriations Committee of the House of Representatives on April 9. He stressed that the Ministry of Finance “intends to follow the law”. It refuses to clarify whether this means the documents will be provided on time. As a result, the Declaration has not been transferred.

Neal justifies his request by the fact that IRS is obliged by law to check whether the US President pays taxes. The Democrat noted that the Committee intended to find out whether the staff of the service performed these functions properly.
