House Committee Releases Trump Tax Returns After Years Of Legal Battles

Dec 30, 2022 | Political News

The House Ways and Means Committee released the tax returns of former President Donald Trump on Friday following a lengthy legal battle to keep the documents sealed.

The powerful committee voted along party lines last week to release the tax returns after the Supreme Court rejected the former commander-in-chief’s request to block the IRS from giving the records to lawmakers. The documents, redacted to omit information such as Social Security numbers, cover the years 2015 to 2020 and include both individual and business filings.

The newly released records provide about 6,000 pages of information on how Trump handled his taxes; he often used various deductions and business losses to decrease the amount he owed to the federal government.
