A spokesman for the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee said Tuesday that the redacted tax returns of former Republican President Donald Trump will be released on Friday.
The Democratic-controlled committee obtained filings last month as part of an investigation into Trump’s taxes after a lengthy legal battle in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in its favor.
The commission released a report last week that said the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) broke its own rules by failing to audit three of Trump’s four years in office.
The documents to be released Friday are expected to include Trump’s tax returns filed from 2015 to 2021.
A spokeswoman for Trump declined to comment.
Trump’s tax returns weren’t released alongside last week’s report because they contained sensitive information that needed to be redacted before it was released, according to committee members.
Democrats on the committee said the report needed to be made public to understand the context of the report, which also contained legislation requiring the IRS to audit the president.
Trump was the first presidential candidate in decades not to release his tax returns during either election campaign.
How Democrats on the Committee will handle them after gaining revenue before Republicans regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives in January after narrowly winning the midterm elections in November We had only a few weeks to decide.
