EPIC sues IRS over Trump’s tax returns

The Electronic Privacy Information Center on Saturday sued the IRS for failing to release President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

In a FOIA request to the IRS dated March 29, the advocacy group explained that releasing Trump’s tax returns may "correct misstatements of fact" and ensure the “integrity and fairness" of the tax system.

The lawsuit comes three days before Tax Day, which is the deadline for taxpayers to file returns.

Tax Day demonstrations are taking place nationwide on Saturday in a call for Trump to release his tax returns.

"There has never been a more compelling FOIA request presented to the IRS," according to a press release.
