Trump could release his taxes but probably won't, experts say

"'I'm being audited' is not an excuse for President Trump to not release his 2016 tax return".

"It's been covered before".

Trump said as he campaigned that he'd release his taxes, then he talked about how he'd wait until he wasn't under audit, then he seemed to stay silent over what Hillary Clinton and others were saying - that he probably didn't pay any taxes.

And Saturday's nationwide protests on Saturday, April 15 - typically tax day, although not this year - spurred Trump's presidential motorcade to avoid protesters in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Second, and more important, there are legitimate reasons why a majority of Americans continue to say Trump should release his returns.

Protesters from coast to coast called on President Donald Trump over the weekend to release his tax returns.

"There is just too much at stake with Trump's tax return". "This is interesting, Chris Cuomo, my friend, asked him, 'Why are you always being audited.' He said, 'Maybe because of the fact that I'm a strong Christian'".

Fighting talk from Ferrari after Vettel wins Bahrain GP
Vettel had took the lead from Pole sitter Valtteri Bottas early as he struggled with over-steering on his MercedesAMG racer. Ferrari had a field day at the 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix as it divided the two Mercedes drivers and conquered.

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on ABC's "This Week" that "the White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns". "When there's a provision in the bill people are going to say 'Oh, this is for President Trump and his business, not for the benefit of the American people.' And particularly when you have the kind of large real estate business that he has there are all kinds of tax laws that affect it". On Monday, his press secretary was asked whether Trump would ever release them.

When Trump took office in January, Republicans aimed to replace the Affordable Care Act before moving to tax reform, partly because changing health-care-linked taxes would give them more flexibility when crafting a tax plan. Being under audit does not prohibit tax returns from being released. "Now Tax Returns are brought up again?" he tweeted earlier Monday.

"I'm sure a careful tax attorney would advise him not to disclose it in the middle of an audit", Joseph Thorndike, director of the Tax History Project at Tax Analysts, told USA Today in February 2016.

Trump is under multiple investigations now for his campaign and transition team's constant talk with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, while Russian Federation was, in an act of hostile aggression tantamount to declaring war, helping Trump win the election.

"Congress can make these returns public", Johnston said, pointing to the Joint Committee on Taxation as the vehicle that could take action. In Northern California, Tax Day protests were held in Santa Cruz, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Walnut Creek, Sacramento, Santa Rosa, Ukiah, and other cities. "And if they don't, we'll be paying attention on the upcoming elections".

The returns can reveal how much Trump makes in a given year, but not how much he is worth, something that has been a topic of much debate.
