Now, more than ever, transparency for presidential candidates is vital, because the tradition of financial disclosure is at risk of no longer applying. A new public awareness has grown to address this need to daylight the financials of our presidential candidates.
Since 1976, major US candidates have traditionally released their tax returns to the public. The Presidential Transparency Project exists to pass the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, which would require presidential candidates to release at least eight years of their tax returns in order to appear on the ballot in each state.
Together, we can restore the public’s faith in government, which has been so badly shaken, starting with its highest office.
