My bill, A.1390, directs the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance to make public its copies of the state income returns filed by statewide elected public officials, including the President of the United States.
Historically, the release of tax returns by elected officials in high public office has been the norm. Tax returns provide information as to an elected official's compliance with law, charitable nature and economic connections. They also tend to disclose potential conflicts of interest.
