Tax Day demonstrators demand that Trump release tax returns

Tax Day demonstrators demand that Trump release tax returns”

Large protests are expected Saturday across the country pegged to Tax Day to pressure President Donald Trump to release his tax returns.

"We're seeing this as the beginning of a push against Republican and Trump tax plans", said Americans for Tax Fairness Executive Director Frank Clemente, whose group is a partner in the march.

"President Trump must release his full tax returns".

The new survey comes as thousands of Americans in Washington, D.C., and more than 150 communities around the country prepare to march on Saturday for a fairer, more equitable tax system.

Actress Kate Walsh, comedian Sarah Silverman and U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries were among the protesters.

The Massachusetts Democrat posted an online video Friday calling on Congress to force Trump to release his tax returns.

The Washington, D.C., march began Saturday with a rally at the U.S. Capitol, where Democratic lawmakers called on Trump to stop the secrecy. While the march takes place over the weekend on tax day, April 15, this year's filing deadline has been pushed until Tuesday, April 18, due to a holiday recognized by the nation's capital on Monday.

The IRS has strict rules for auditing presidential tax returns: They are automatically audited each year.

Almost nine in ten (88 percent) believe it is important for Trump to release his tax returns in order to "be more honest and transparent with the American people", including 62 percent who think it is "very important".

Several hundred protesters marched across the bridge that divides West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, chanting and hoisting signs that read "Don the Con", "Go back to New York", "Show your taxes!" and "Show me the money!" Last month, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported on two pages of Trump's 2005 return that were obtained by investigative reporter David Cay Johnston and released by DCReport.org. "That's what the tax marches across the country are all about - local constituents asking their own representatives to perform their constitutional duty to act as a check on an out-of-control President". "The American people want to know who he is connected with, what the possible conflicts are, if he actually pays his taxes and how many loopholes he takes advantage of".

Despite the issue of taxes emerging frequently in the 2016 elections, mostly in relation to President Trump's tax returns, the public's views on fairness of federal taxes are little changed since 2015.

"Every American deserves to know who President Trump owes a favor to".

The event was staged to protest the policies of President Donald Trump and to demand that he release his tax information.
