Donald Trump has responded to demands that he release his tax forms by saying that last year’s taxes filed early this year are under IRS audit. Trump also has claimed that his taxes have been subjected to an IRS audit for the past several years.
Trump says the conventional wisdom is that it would be crazy to release taxes to the public during an audit:
Tax experts throughout the media agree that no sane person would give their tax returns during an audit. After the audit, no problem!

Is that so?
"Throughout the media" – because that's where a normal person goes to get their legal advice re: taxes… https://t.co/QSYD7bWsH2

They also agree you are probably lying about being audited for multiple years in a row.
Release your taxes. https://t.co/a1yMcPXTeS

@realDonaldTrump What about releasing the ones from years that were NOT under audit? You two-faced liar.
