We should repeal the current tax system by implementing The FAIRtax; thus, eliminating tax returns.

Yes, but only for the purposes of learning from where they receive their income or if they are defrauding the IRS.

Yes, but only if there are credible accusations of fraud or illegal business practices

No, tax returns have nothing to do with their ability to perform their duties, and their income is none of our business

Not publicly, but a multi partisan Congressional committee that changes every year should be privy to yearly audits. Senators and Representatives should also be subject to audits every other year. The audits should only be made public if the president or Congressperson is legally charged with wrongdoing.

Instead of the candidates, how about the people already in office. As we know their salaries already, they should tell us how they achieved their new found wealth.

No, I would respect them more if they did but they shouldn’t be required to, and tax returns have nothing to do with their ability to perform their duties

No, but if they are in high demand from the public, they should be released.

@akevinchen from California answered…2yrs

Yes, and also required to release their medical records and a public audit each year they are in office

@kgtiberius from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

No. Candidates should only release such data when this becomes a legal requirement, either by Act of Congress or by subpoena; however, voluntary release of such private data would make me more comfortable and knowledgeable about the candidate's trustworthiness and to whom the candidate might be susceptible. Once the candidate is elected to office, financial review is a requirement of security clearance (along with medical records) -- and should be open to FOIA (Freedom of Information Act).

Independent Annual Audits should be required for political candidates before and during their terms to insure they are not receiving illegal funds, but these do not need to be released to the public.

@8KCZFTR from New Jersey answered…2yrs

Yes because some people have been avoiding this to prove they did not commit tax fraud... that person being Donald Trump the president of the United States

@7VXCKJ2 from Kentucky answered…2yrs

No, but they should go through an independent audit from public and private organizations.

@8GR8N5C from Texas answered…2yrs

I am honestly unsure, I feel that after trump it should be required but at the same time it is personal stuff

@3GZTJR2 answered…2yrs

Yes, and also require them to release their medical records each year they are in office as well as have a public audit each year they are in office
