Neal: Will Ask POTUS For His Tax Return

Springfield  Congressman Richard Neal is focusing on President Trump in anticipation  of being named the new House Ways and Means Committee chair.  

Neal told  reporters that he plans to ask Trump to release his tax  returns if he is named to the position, but that he hopes Trump will  release the documents himself before a formal request is made.  

Neal  said the committee has the ability to make such requests, but that he  assumed there would be a legal challenge.  

Trump's tax returns have been  the subject of scrutiny since the 2016 election, and he has so-far  refused to release them.

Under federal law, both the President and Vice President are audited every year.  

That provision came out of the Watergate era.
