Boyle Applauds Formal Request for Trump Tax Returns

April 3, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02), a member of the Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement after Committee Chairman Richard Neal submitted a formal written request to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Charles Rettig for six years of President Donald J. Trump’s personal and business tax returns:

"President Trump is the first president since Richard Nixon to choose not to disclose his tax returns. Congress is a co-equal branch of government and it is our constitutional duty to provide oversight of departments and officials, including the IRS and the president. This is not about politics. This is about bringing a shred of transparency to the highest office in the land. The public deserves no less. I thank Chairman Neal for his thoughtful leadership formally requesting President Trump’s personal and business tax returns for the past six years. I hope the president puts the public first for once and fully complies with this legal request.”
