President Trump's personal tax records could soon be made public

President Donald Trump speaks at Morristown Municipal Airport in Morristown New Jersey on Sunday

NY governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday signed into law a measure allowing Congress to obtain President Trump's NY state tax returns.

"This bill gives Congress the ability to fulfill its Constitutional responsibilities, strengthen our democratic system and ensure that no one is above the law", Cuomo said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an amendment to a tax law that would require the commissioner of the Department of Taxation and Finance to share state income tax returns and reports when certain congressional committees request them.

Democrats have said they have the authority to seek Trump's tax returns, citing the century-old IRS code 6103 that stipulates when the Ways and Means Committee requests an individual's tax returns, the agency "shall furnish" them.

"We will respond to this as appropriate", he said in a statement.

But with the ongoing battle for Trump's federal tax returns, Neal has previously suggested that he wouldn't use New York's new law to obtain the state tax documents in the event that it hurts his own efforts with Treasury, according to Bloomberg.

But now, NY has given Congress a new route to #ReleaseTheReturns and get answers for the American people-all they have to do is ask.

France says it will not launch dispute resolution for Iran nuclear deal
Discussions with European powers are continuing and ministerial-level talks are planned later this month, he said. A spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry earlier called on the U.K.to release the tanker .

A spokesman for Neal didn't respond to a request for comment about whether he would acquire Trump's state returns using the new NY law.

Neal's reluctance to use the NY law is likely to set up a clash with progressives who have criticized the Massachusetts Democrat for not moving more quickly to obtain the tax returns.

Despite accusations from Republican lawmakers that NY state's new law is politically motivated and unconstitutional, the bill's sponsors claim they aren't personally targeting President Trump. The committee then explained that members could disclose why it wants the information in this case, arguing that it needed to see if Trump was complying with tax law.

It's unclear when or even whether state tax officials can expect a request for the tax returns.

The subpoenas, issued by the Constitutional Accountability Center, which is representing the group of Democrats including Blumenthal and House judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., demand evidence about Trump's financial records by July 29.

Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal, D-Massachusetts, however, has signalled that he may not be interested. "Any further delay is an injustice to the American people who deserve transparency about Trump's foreign entanglements and massive conflicts of interest".
