We demand that the Presidential Tax Transparency Act be passed by the U.S. Congress and that it be signed into law by President Trump. For the past 40 years, presidential nominees of both major parties have released their tax returns in part to assure the public that, if elected, there will be no conflicts of interest. We deserve to know how President Trump's businesses will benefit from his executive actions, new bills he signs into law, and the general operations of the federal government. We deserve to know whether President Trump has financial ties with Russia. And we deserve to know whether President Trump has paid any federal income taxes in recent years, and how he will benefit from his own tax plan that slashes the taxes owed by the richest Americans and the biggest corporations.

As Donald Trump begins his presidency, yet continues to own hundreds of businesses that will be run by his sons, the potential conflicts of interest are widespread. Ending a rigged system starts at the top. Draining the swamp begins with disclosure.
The first step is getting the U.S. Congress to act, especially the U.S. Senate. That requires getting hundreds of thousands of individuals to demand action.
Senator Ron Wyden, the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, has introduced the Presidential Tax Transparency Act. It requires all sitting presidents and major party nominees for president to release the last three years of their tax returns. Now that Donald Trump is President, it is urgent that the U.S. Congress pass this legislation.
For the last 40 years, presidential nominees of both major parties have released their tax returns in part to assure the public that, if elected, there will be no conflicts of interest.
