What you need to know about the latest court case involving President Trump’s lawsuit to block the release of his tax returns September 17, 2021 September 17, 2021 admin

The IRS is defending the agency’s decision to delay releasing the president’s tax returns, saying it was necessary to comply with court orders.

Lawyers for the IRS filed a motion Thursday to stay the release until next week to allow the public to review the president and his legal team’s tax filings.

The Trump campaign, the president, and his lawyers have said they plan to appeal the IRS’s decision, and the IRS has said it will hold off on releasing the tax returns until it reviews them.

The court’s order says the release “may be delayed if necessary to accommodate the public’s interest in reviewing the president or his legal counsel.”
