Washington (AP) —The Justice Department states that the Treasury must provide former President Donald Trump’s tax return to the Houseways and Means Commission.
The move clearly ends a long legal confrontation over records.
During the Trump administration, then Treasury Secretary Stephen Munuchin said he would not file a tax return because he concluded that he was being sought after by Democrats who ruled the House of Representatives for partisan reasons.
The Commission has appealed for records under federal law, which states that the Internal Revenue Service “provides” a handful of top lawmakers with taxpayer refunds.
The Commission said Trump’s tax was needed to investigate whether he complied with tax law.
