Today, Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) introduced a bill titled “The Presidential Tax Transparency Act” that would require presidential candidates to publicly disclose their tax returns.  Senator Wyden states that “[f]or nearly 40 years, presidential candidates from major political parties have voluntarily released tax returns during the campaign.”  Senator Wyden notes that the Senate Finance Committee currently requires all nominees for presidential appointments that require Senate confirmation to submit their tax return information.  A summary of the bill can be found here, and the full bill can be found here
