We also know that he declared a almost $1 billion loss in the 1990s that could have wiped out all his federal income tax obligations for up to 18 years. "This is like badgering".
"It's going to make tax reform much harder" if Trump doesn't release his returns, Schumer said. And as we approach tax day Americans across the country are turning up the pressure on Trump to release his returns.
Americans have only seen small snippets of Trump's past tax returns.
Trump admitted to sales-tax cheating in 1983 after he bought more than $65,000 of jewelry at Bulgari, across the street from newly open Trump Tower, and having empty boxes sent to a CT address so he could evade more than $4,000 of taxes.

Where a legitimate blind trust would have seen Trump liquefy his assets and place them in the hands of a disinterested and detached third party, the president kept his branded properties and kept them in the hands of his children, with whom he's in regular contact. That includes a majority (53 percent) of Republicans.
Though taxes in general are confidential, Congress has long had the explicit legal authority to examine Trump's tax returns - through the Joint Committee on Taxation - and make its findings public. As a businessman and candidate for office, Trump repeatedly bragged about his financial ties to Russian Federation; now, he insists he has none.
