Require the President and Presidential Nominees to Disclose their Tax Returns (v. 4)

I invite you to cosponsor H.R. 305, the
Presidential Tax Transparency Act, which requires presidents and presidential nominees of major parties to publicly disclose their previous three years of federal tax returns with the Office of
Government Ethics or the Federal Election Commission.
Those who seek or hold the highest office in the land should be open and transparent with the American people about their tax returns. Tax returns contain vital information, such as were any taxes paid, were any charitable contributions made, were tax loopholes
taken advantage of, and are any assets kept offshore, and what debts are owed, and to whom.
For decades, Presidents and candidates have disclosed their tax returns voluntarily but this bipartisan practice has never been required by law. The
Presidential Tax Transparency Act writes this important disclosure tradition into law by requiring sitting presidents to file their tax returns annually, and by requiring nominees to disclose their
returns within 15 days of receiving their party’s nomination.
For more information or to add your name as a cosponsor, please contact Paul Beck of my staff at 225-8104.
Sincerely,
Anna G. Eshoo

Cosponsor H.R. 2014, the Tax Pollution, Not Profits Act (v. 6)

To accomplish anything in Congress, we have to come together, setting aside ideology, and forge compromises for the good of the nation.  That has been my guiding principle since coming to Congress, and it’s the guiding principle behind my new legislation,
the Tax Pollution, Not Profits Act.  Currently we have two huge forces working against economic growth: our extremely high corporate tax rate and the existential threat of climate change.  This legislation seeks to solve both problems at the same time.
