Mike Pence insisted Donald Trump is still planning on sharing his tax returns...eventually.
He told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump would release his returns as soon as an audit was completed. However, nothing prevents anyone from releasing tax returns during an audit, former IRS commissioner Fred Goldberg told CNBC.
Pence didn't even confirm Trump would release his before Election Day, but he would be releasing his own tax returns "next week."
Hillary Clinton released her tax returns weeks ago. Trump's delay is oft-criticized.
And Clinton's vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine, has also released his returns.
What's all the fuss about tax returns?
They show how much wealth a candidate actually has, as opposed to how much that candidate says he or she has. Many believe Trump has exaggerated his wealth, and others suspect Trump pays far less in taxes than his supporters would want to believe.
Can't someone force him to release them?
Nope. There's no law requiring tax returns to be released. It's just common in an election year.
What else did Pence say?
Hillary Clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency.
That's actually lighter than Trump's take, who has repeatedly called Clinton the most corrupt presidential candidate of all time.
