Protests over Trump tax returns delay

Tax March: Thousands in Denver demand to see Trump's tax returns US protesters call on Trump to release tax returns, suggest he's 'too chicken'

"We are under the same audit that existed, so nothing has changed." said Spicer.

Presidents and many presidential candidates have released their tax returns voluntarily since Richard Nixon initiated the practice in the 1970s.

Last year, Donald Trump became the first major-party political nominee in over 40 years to choose not to release his federal taxes. How else are we know to when the president is working for us or for The Trump Organization?

"Donald Trump's tax returns will be under audit because the IRS audits the returns of every president", Rosenthal told Salon. She and a friend rode a bus from New Jersey to New York City to take part in protests.

Those looking for President Donald Trump 's tax returns will likely have to keep waiting.

President Trump promised at many different points to make his tax returns public, and still, he has shown no indication of releasing the returns.

And on February 3, in the midst of major protests against Trump's first executive order on immigration, the president tweeted that "Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Trump has continually cited his audit as his reasoning for not releasing his returns.

The tax day protests in more than a dozen cities Saturday were largely peaceful, though occasionally demonstrators and some pro-Trump groups taunted each other in face-to-face exchanges.

In South Florida, activists marched to Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, where the president stayed over the weekend.

Toting handmade signs, marchers shouted their discontent regarding the current administration's transparency and potential conflicts of interest due to Trump's worldwide business ties. The rallies were a forum to draw attention to the fact that the nation has still not seen its president's tax returns, despite the fact that he intends to take up tax reform as his next big challenge.

Spicer was asked if Trump would ever release his tax returns and replied, "I'd have to get back to you on that".

The deadline for filing individual tax returns is on Tuesday.

The rally began at the steps of the Milwaukee County Court House, and event organizers said that the march was about transparency and social justice.
