For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to the Federal Election Commission, asking them to make tax return disclosure a requirement for all future presidential elections.

Every U.S. Presidential candidate since Richard Nixon has voluntarily released copies of their tax returns to the public so that voters can assess the amount and sources of income, taxes paid, charitable contributions and other data which can affect our propensity to elect them.

This election cycle is the first time a presidential candidate has refused to do so. Donald Trump, despite enormous public pressure, has refused to release any of his tax returns.

Recently someone leaked one year of Trump’s tax returns to the New York Times. This one year suggest that Trump may not have paid federal taxes for almost two decades.

We should insist on transparency from all presidential candidates. Help us tell the Federal Elections Commission that not only do we want Trump to have to release his tax returns, but we want tax return disclosure to be a requirement in all future elections.

This is a no-brainer! As public service is rapidly morphs into self-service, we need to know the basics of a candidates financial interests.
