5 things to know about Tax Day: refunds are up, audits down

"We're like your taxes".

While there were compensated members belonging to different organizations opposing White House policies present at the event, the individual protesters themselves were not compensated.

The organisers of "Tax March" wanted to call attention to Trump's refusal to disclose his tax returns, as his predecessors have done for over 40 years.

The run-up to tax day featured protests around the country demanding President Donald Trump release his federal tax returns.

"We know that he has business interests in Turkey and in Saudi Arabia, and in Dubai and in India, etc". Now Tax Returns are brought up again?' Trump wrote.

About 25,000 to as many as 35,000 protesters poured onto New York City streets on Saturday, according to NYPD estimates, organizer Wes Shockley said.

The Tax March reflected the most recent national polls showing 53% of Americans believe Trump should be forced to release his tax returns.

Protesters say Americans deserve to know about Trump's potential conflicts of interest.

In March, investigative journalist David Cay Johnston received a copy of Trump's 2005 tax return summary.

Toting handmade signs, marchers shouted their discontent regarding the current administration's transparency and potential conflicts of interest due to Trump's worldwide business ties.

A huge inflatable chicken, adorned to look like Trump, toured the area, apparently to suggest that the Republican president was afraid, or chicken, to publish his tax records.

The Washington, D.C., march began with a rally at the U.S. Capitol, where Sen.

Later in the briefing, ABC's Jon Karl revived the subject by asking Spicer if "it's time to say, once and for all, that the president is never going to release his tax returns". "Ron Wyden called on Trump to 'knock off the secrecy".

While U.S. presidents are not required to release their tax returns, almost all U.S. presidents had voluntarily released them since 1970s.

Trump's comments followed a nationwide Tax March that drew thousands of people to dozens of cities on the country's traditionally recognised deadline to file taxes, April 15.

Two And A Half Men star Jon Cryer and comedian Andy Richter joined thousands of people at a march in Los Angeles.
