This is why Donald Trump’s tax returns haven’t been leaked

Donald Trump has maintained for
seven months that he cannot release
his tax returns because he is being
audited by the Internal Revenue
Service, making him the first major -
party nominee for president since
President Gerald Ford to withhold such
records from the public .
Last week , his son Donald Trump Jr.
gave a different excuse for not
releasing the documents , saying the
returns would be “ distracting . ”

the real reason his dad isn’ t releasing
his tax returns ]
With so much speculation surrounding
them , the GOP nominee and wealthy
businessman ’ s tax filings may just be
the most wanted information of the
2016 campaign .
While Trump insists that voters “ don ’t
care ” about his returns , journalists ,
Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton
and many voters insist the public
wants to see them . New York
Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet
and Washington Post Associate Editor
Bob Woodward told a Harvard
University forum this month they
would love to publish Trump ’s returns
if someone leaked them , even if it
meant serving jail time . Some
Americans have wondered whether
Trump actually paid any taxes during
some years — and if he is as rich as
he says he is .
