California has made it mandatory for all presidential candidates to submit the last five years of their tax returns in order to appear on the state's ballot according to the Hill.
The California State Assembly on Thursday passed a bill that would require all presidential candidates to release their tax returns prior to being placed on the state’s ballot. The bill, called the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, passed the state assembly on a 42-18 vote and will now head to the state Senate for a concurrence vote before being sent to the Governor for his signature. The bill would require all presidential candidates to release the last five years of their tax returns in order to appear on the California ballot. The tax returns would be made available to the public on the California Secretary of State’s website.
