Trump Asks For Extension To File His 2017 Tax Return

Trump has broken with four decades of presidential tradition by not publicly releasing his tax returns, despite the wishes of more than two-thirds of Americans, according to a February Quinnipiac poll.

The Commander-In-Chief has reportedly filed for an extension for his 2017 tax return, the White House announced on April. 17. "He will file his tax return by the extension deadline of October 15, 2018".

The president has said that he can not show his tax returns because he is being audited.

Since the president's tax returns are automatically audited by the IRS, Trump could use the same excuse for the duration of his term, The New York Times reported.

"Thanks to the historic TRUMP TAX CUTS, today marks the last time the American people will file taxes under a complicated & outdated tax system, ' Pence said".

The White House confirmed that Trump and his wife, Melania, earned about $150 million in 2005 and paid federal taxes of about $38 million, after copies of the president's 2005 returns were anonymously sent to a journalist.

The agency acknowledged the issue, saying it was "experiencing technical difficulties".

If you still have yet to file your taxes, you still have plenty of options for you to choose from. "We have all been working 50 to 70 hour weeks since the end of January".

If you owe money not filing will tack on even more penalties to what you already have to pay Uncle Sam.
