Albany, N.Y. - State Lawmakers are moving closer to allowing the release of President Trump's State tax returns.
Lawmakers say they hope to advance a bill today that will allow select Congressional committee leaders to ask for any New York State tax return for any “specified and legitimate legislative purpose.”
President Trump's business empire is headquartered in New York and is his home state. It is believed that the State tax return would have most of the information contained on his Federal returns.
Trump is in a standoff over the release of his tax returns with Washington Democrats and the media.
Gov. Cuomo says he would consider signing the bill so long as it did not single out Trump.
