Trump Taxes and Courtroom Protests Podcast


This podcast in Law360's The Term series discusses the U.S. Supreme Court's consideration of the request from former president, Donald Trump, to shield his tax returns from being provided to the House of Representative's January 6 Committee (Committee). While the arguments largely are moot, as the latest news is that the court approved disclosure (by reversing the stay of the mandate) of Mr. Trump's federal individual tax return filings to the Committee (and consequently, publicly) (see NYTimes article 12/22/22, "Here Are the Key Numbers from Trump's Tax Returns"), the arguments help review tax procedure and discussions of privacy regarding an individual taxpayer's federal income tax filings.
